University staff should not be made to pay for the financial crisis caused by COVID-19. Adelaide University must immediately overturn its staff hiring freeze and commit to no cuts to staff jobs, wages, and conditions.
Why is this important?
Adelaide University has introduced a blanket hiring freeze. Prioritising financial interests over student and staff concerns, this freeze means no new staff recruitment except in ill-defined “exceptional cases”. Casual academics who would usually continue work in Semester Two will not be given new contracts. Adelaide University’s slash-and-burn approach means increased workloads for existing staff and amounts to a dramatic cut in staff numbers. We demand that Adelaide University overturn the staff hiring freeze!
