Some 67 per cent of Victoria University’s employees have voted against an offer of a two per cent pay rise over five years. It follows a previous ballot in 2018 when 77 per cent of staff voted against the university’s pay deal. The National Tertiary Education Union has urged the university to put forward a new offer, flagging the possibility of industrial action if it fails to do so. The union argues that Victoria University’s block teaching program has increased staff workloads by up to 18 per cent.
