As you will no doubt be aware {stated in the last Newsletter} Tessa Duke, Kate Shearman and Nardi Ling positions have been made redundant at Tactile Arts and they are therefore dismissed. Kate is sadly leaving the organisation anyway and so reinstating her is not applicable. Thank you for your support in this matter.

    Wide sweeping changes to the understood workings of an organisation and its' staff are not made without membership input.

    Tess and Nardi are both really dedicated hard workers, I've always been impressed with their level of commitment to Tactile arts. They've always been super helpful during any work I've done through out the space. It is beyond me as to why they would no longer have a job with Tactile as they are both extremely capable.

    These developments are very concerning and distressing. How can we have trust in the "Board' and General Manager when they make such sweeping decisions without consulting the membership? The dismissal of such hard working and dedicated staff in this manner is unacceptable. The General Manager has been quoted as saying "f**k the members". With this attitude they are certainly not working for the interests and wishes of the membership.

    I was very sad to hear that these women have been treated so disrespectfully. I question whether a four person board has the quorum to make these abrupt changes without consultation with members? Where is the strategic plan that supports this 'secret' new direction? Why are these positions made redundant when any one of the sacked staff would be more than capable in filling the new position?
