This November, the Staff Association is running a new activity to support CSIRO.
Our reasons are clear. Unprecedented cuts to funding as a result of the federal budget. Entire areas of research shut down. Nearly 1,300 jobs due to be lost in two years. Sites set to close and careers cut short. Morale at record lows.
It’s time to send a strong message to management and the incoming Chief Executive.
Sign our pledge today. It calls for no more cuts to jobs and research, the protection of employee working conditions and for management to defend CSIRO’s integrity and independence.
Time for management and the Board to step up
The Staff Association has spent the year campaigning for jobs, research and working conditions at CSIRO. We’ve been vocal in our support of staff facing these harsh cuts. We believe it’s time that the Board and senior management do the same.
Incoming Chief Executive Larry Marshall has said rebuilding staff morale will be a major challenge. So will he endorse the current bargaining strategy that aims to cut CSIRO working conditions and wages?
Show your support by signing our pledge
We’re asking all CSIRO employees to sign a pledge to support CSIRO. It’s simple and quick to complete but the message is strong and direct.
The pledge calls on The Board, Dr Marshall and the Executive Team to do three things; protect working conditions at CSIRO, grow research and support jobs across the organisation and to stand up for CSIRO’s independence and integrity.
