Academics Demand La Trobe Management Reinstate Roz Ward Immediately
La Trobe backs down. Roz Ward reinstated.
The university has withdrawn all charges and Roz returned to work on Monday.
The concerted campaign by Roz's union, the Safe Schools community and the wider community has clearly forced the university to come to its senses.
The NTEU calls upon Australia's vice chancellors to stand up and make it very clear that this type of unwarranted attack upon both academic freedom and the right of employees to hold and express an opinion will never be repeated.
If anyone wondered why you might join a union - this is why.
