Fleur Taylor is Vice President of Victoria University's National Tertiary Education branch and joins us on the show to talk about Victoria University going through another restructure. It has been reported that changes will be made to the university's colleges, strategic direction, and more. This comes after 2020 saw university wide staff redundancies, job cuts and changes to working conditions. Fleur talks to us about what the latest changes mean for staff and working conditions. //

Homes Not Prisons is a campaign established in March 2021 to stop the expansion of the maximum-security women’s prison in Melbourne’s western suburbs, the Dame Phyllis Frost Centre, and divert the funding in public housing and Aboriginal community controlled housing.
