Hi Linda. Nice to virtually meet you. For starters here is the link to UCU's pages on hourly paid and fixed-term staff http://www.ucu.org.uk/index.cfm?articleid=2912 In short, this are as grim here as everywhere else, but casualised lecturers have one a couple of individual disputes and some national concessions over the past couple of years.
AFT and NEA local and state organizations are unified in several locales in the USA> In San Francisco, we merged in 1989, the result of a campaign by the AFT local in favor of merger....based on past negotiations laying the basis for merger...
Now NEA locals may affiliate with AFL CIO local labor councils, IF there is no competing AFT local: slowly the basis is being built for unity....but it is not 1998---when the issues of merger nationally was on the NEA
national agenda and also on that of AFT....
Thanks for explaining the Australian education workers unions for me. It is always fascinating to see other forms and how they work. I really like this social network site because I think there's a gigantic need for us - union members, I mean - to see ourselves more as part of an international whole. They have their globalization. We need ours.
Thanks for friending me. I see you are a member of a union of education workers! I would love to know a little more about who yr union organizes. As you can see, I am a member of a teachers union. I teach social studies in a high school in New York City.
