The Security of a Permanent Position · 2002

14._The_Security_of_a_Permanent_Position_2002.jpgIn December 2000, the Full Bench of the Australian Industrial Relations Commission rules that, after working a given period of time as a casual, workers should have a right to convert to long-term contract of permanent employment. Based on this ruling, we achieve a big breakthrough with regard to the employment of casual teachers at the Canberra Institute of Technology. The 2002 Casual Teachers’ Agreement goes a long way to making defunct the unjust practice of retaining precariously employed teachers for years with little hope of permanency, though they are carrying out the same role semester after semester. Many of our CIT members convert from casual to contract or permanent status.
