TEU University of Canterbury Branch Member Survey
The Tertiary Education Union Te Hautū Kahurangi o Aotearoa (TEU) is the union of academic and general staff employed within the New Zealand tertiary education system. One of the TEU’s primary roles is expressing a collective view on industrial, educational and professional issues within the tertiary education sector, the education community and more broadly in the public arena. In 2011 the TEU had a national voluntary membership in excess of 11000 and represented more than 1100 employees at the University of Canterbury. Following the February 2011 earthquake, the Canterbury Branch of the TEU surveyed members to determine the psychological and physical impact of the earthquakes on members, in particular on their working conditions and ability to participate in consultation processes.
