8.2.1 The University will explore all available options to mitigate the impact of any reduction in the size of the University's workforce. Wherever reasonably practicable, reductions in the size of the University's workforce will occur through natural attrition and voluntary measures such as, voluntary redundancy, redeployment, relocation, training or retraining before consideration is given to involuntary retrenchment. Therefore, involuntary retrenchment will be used as a last resort.

8.2.2 Subject to any exceptional circumstances that may arise (including substantial adverse changes in Government funding or major negative economic disruption), a staff member who has been redeployed during the nominal life of the Agreement as an outcome of a major change process will not have their employment ended as a result of involuntary retrenchment in a subsequent major change process within the nominal life of the Agreement.

8.2.3 Staff members may choose to be assisted throughout the discussions in these processes by a Staff Representative.
