Repeal Voluntary Student Unionism in Victoria

Target: Victorian Paliament
Region: Australia

Petition Background (Preamble):

Last year students defeated National VSU. Now it's time to win in Victoria. Victorian VSU was introduced by the Kennett Government in 1994.

Since 1994 VSU in Victoria has seen the destruction of aspects of student autonomy, student representation, student media, clubs and societies and other areas of student organisation activity.

Vice Chancellors now police how student organisations can spend their money. Yet every student in Victoria continues to pay a compulsory non-academic fee.

Last year the ALP formed government in Victoria with a policy to repeal Victorian VSU. Let's keep up the pressure for a return to the pre 1994 position.


We, the undersigned, petition the Victorian Government to maintain pressure in Parliament to abolish voluntary student unionism with a return to the pre-1994 policies.
