Academics strike in Australia

September 20, 2009 at 11:45 am Leave a comment

Universities across Australia were on strike last week, aiming for annual salary increases of 6%, among other issues. With the University of Sydney having already agreed salary increases of 5% a year till 2012, US based academics can only look on with envy. They might want to note that the strike is led by a national union of higher education, the National Tertiary Education Union. Surely this can’t be the reason NYU and other US universities are devoting so much money in the time of financial crisis to halt the spread of unionization?
