Sydney university asks employees to ‘suggest’ how to cut up to 30% of some faculty staff | Australian universities

The University of Sydney has asked staff to “suggest” ways it could cut up to 30% of full-time jobs in some faculties, in a move the union claims could result in Australia’s largest university cuts.

On Wednesday, staff in the school of education received an email telling them the dean of the arts faculty was asking for “suggestions on how we might restructure to reduce by up to 30% full-time equivalent [employees]”.

According to the Usyd Casuals Network, staff received the email late on Wednesday, but were then told by the dean on Thursday that “this was not a directive to implement cuts but only to conceive of ‘scenarios’ that might include such cuts”.

However, the group – which represents casual staff at the university – said: “We reject the notion that there is a difference between a hypothetical scenario and a concrete plan.”

Fans and critics of Danielle Cohn have speculated about whether she’s really 16 or if she’s actually younger.
  • Controversial teen influencer Danielle Cohn has been the subject of scrutiny for years, particuarly over questions about her real age.

  • Cohn and her mother say she turned 16 in March 2020, but Cohn’s father wrote an explosive Facebook post last year claiming she was actually only 13 at the time, which would make her 14 today.

  • In a recent livestream, Cohn was answering fan questions about whether she’d have a baby with her current boyfriend, and Cohn said she would consider it in “5 or 6 years” — when she is “19 or 20.”

  • That timeline would make her 14 now, but Cohn’s mother says she simply did the math wrong.
