University of Ballarat redundancy talks today
The University’s Vice-Chancellor Professor David Battersby announced last month voluntary redundancies would be offered to all staff.
The move was partly in response to an $8 million revenue loss the university expects from a drop in international student numbers.
At the time, Professor Battersby said the redundancies would offer staff the chance to take extended leave without pay for study, travel, parenting or being a carer.
“Our workforce is our most valuable asset, but it’s also our most costly,” he said.
“This is about being agile and flexible as a university.”
