VU strike suspended

March 14, 2009

The National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU) has suspended scheduled rolling strike action across all Victoria University (VU) campuses in Melbourne.

Community group "Friends of Victoria University" was informed by the NTEU that considerable progress in the negotiations for a new collective agreement had been made with VU management.

However, concerns remain over proposed course cuts and possible retrenchments.
