Swinburne University Council: Guarantee the Election of Students & Staff to the University Council

In 1983, Swinburne Council stood alongside students and staff and called on Government to abandon cuts and changes to tertiary education. It's time Swinburne Council took a stand in support of our Swinburne Community!

We call on Swinburne University Council to condemn the Victorian State Government for stripping Swinburne University Council of Staff and Student Representatives.

We demand Swinburne University Council immediately appoint the AEC to conduct full and fair proportional representation elections to appoint two students and three staff to Swinburne University Council, with those elected staff to be one elected from all General Staff, one elected from all TAFE Teaching (including Sessional) Staff and one elected from all Academic (including Sessional) Staff.

We require Swinburne University Council to report to all students and staff on these matters as soon as possible and by email no later than 27th March 2013 and to a general meeting of staff and students no later than 28th March 2013.
