New cleaning structure
The management structure of cleaning services at the Clayton campus have changed. From Monday 4 July, the campus will be cleaned by a mix of internal staff and external contractors. The cleaning service will still be managed by Arthur Brent who can be contacted on extension 54073.
Facilities and Services, along with Student and Staff Services and the Liquor, Hospitality and Miscellaneous Workers Union have been working with cleaning staff to discuss ongoing service provision and how it may be managed into the future. A number of voluntary separation packages were accepted by cleaning staff. From an end-user perspective, initially, there should be little change in the service. Moving forward Facilities and Services will be developing a more user focussed and performance-driven cleaning regime across the campus.
Translation: A message from senior administration at Monash University: Arrangements for cleaning staff will change on July 4th. The person to contact regarding the cleaning services remains Arthur Brent on extension 54073. Some cleaning staff have been asked to leave and have accepted the offer. Cleaning services should remain unaltered.

The Fusion 2 and 3 are ideal for lightweight, all year shelter.
