Diddums

From The Press today an article with a bunch of whining university professors. Take this whinger:

An associate professor, who has worked at the university for almost 20 years, said changes to his timetable had led him to look for a job overseas.

The man, who did not want to be named, said that for more than five years he had been able to work “family-friendly” hours that had allowed him to drop off and pick up his children from childcare and school.

The proposed timetable would make that impossible for him to do.

A surefire sign that University payrolls and employee conditions of service are unreal, padded and lead to these entitlement attitudes.

He believed the new system was bought in to maximise student enrolments, with little consideration to the impact on staff.

“People are sending furious emails. People are contacting the union and people are printing off resumes.”

Leave…I am sure there will plenty lining up to take your padded, soft-arse job.

Meanwhile the students are very happy with the new timetable…aren’t they the customers?
