About the network

15 unions worldwide have now signed an international agreement on defending education and employment standards in the context of global marketisation. Together, these unions represent more than half a million tertiary education workers around the world.

The deepening global recession and the cutting back of public provision will only give greater encouragement to a burgeoning private sector, making the international agreement only more relevant and important.

We are now turning this community of over 500,000 academics into something tangible.

Australian union calls for fair trial for Dr Beltran

Thanks to the National Tertiary Education Union of Australia (NTEU) for writing to President Uribe of Colombia calling for a fair trial for Dr Beltran. The NTEU’s letter, copied to Education International and the minister for Foreign Affairs in Australia, notes that Dr Beltran is a prisoner of conscience and calls for independent observers to be present at his trial. You can read the letter here:/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/NTEUletterDrBeltran.doc

We need more letters from education unions around the world. Please help.
