Deakin Wage Theft: We Need Your Help!

We are at a critical juncture of our wage theft dispute and we need your help.

Five months have elapsed. Brave casual academics have come forward with moving and brave testimony detailing their experiences of wage theft at Deakin University.

Still, Deakin insists that there is no systemic wage theft at Deakin University.

To get a fair outcome for all staff, we need your help.

  1. Please sign open letter, calling on Deakin University to pay back stolen wages
  2. Ask all your colleagues to sign this letter

The piece rate model that has resulted in significant underpayments of sessional staff is directly linked to the broken workload model, which impacts all academic staff. One hour of marking per student per trimester is not enough. This piece rate, which is unsupported by empirical evidence, must be abolished.
