QCU research on working from home
The Queensland Council of Unions (QCU) is currently conducting a research project aiming to establish how work from home and telecommuting arrangements can be more effectively implemented for workers in a variety of industries. The project covers issues including supervision, communication, mental health, safety and work patterns, including work intensification.
Given the unique challenges faced by teachers accessing work from home arrangements, it is important to collect data on the experiences of our members (even if you were unable to work from home).
The QCU will be running a survey and our union encourages members to participate. It should take 5 – 7 minutes and a link will be promoted via our union’s social media in coming weeks.
