Most tertiary education institutions are constantly reviewing, restructuring or making changes to some aspect of the workplace that affects TEU members.
Changes in government policy, funding and student enrolments are all factors that drive the proposed changes. Some changes members may agree with and support, others members will oppose TEU recognises that restructuring and reviews, even when done very well make the work environment very difficult for members.
There is a significant effect on workplace morale, stress levels and perhaps ultimately the employment of some members. TEU places a high priority on organising collectively as well as providing support and assistance for members affected by restructuring. If your workplace is being reviewed or restructured contact us so we can help.
Below is TEU’s Guide to restructuring and reviews and management of change.
TEU has also produced a 2009 survey of the impact of restructuring and reviews on university staff.
