Southern Cross University staff have been dismayed by the “All Staff” announcement regarding the dire financial circumstances at Southern Cross University.

The CPSU met with members on 1st May to discuss the announcement and their concerns about further budget cuts, job losses and the general low morale of staff at the University.

With Enterprise Bargaining about to commence at the University the CPSU is concerned that SCU staff pay and conditions will be initially targeted by the University in order to cut costs rather than looking at where the money is really flying out the door.

Can you tell us where there has been inappropriate waste of SCU funds? Do you have any suggestions to save jobs at SCU?
