    The Tertiary Education Commission's boss has confirmed it needs to save 25 million dollars over four years

    The Tertiary Education Commission's boss has confirmed it needs to save 25 million dollars over four years


    It's looking at disestablishing 28 roles - nine of them already vacant.

    Women do three-quarters of the jobs at risk - sparking concern from the PSA union.

    He says they're committed to treating all staff fairly and equally.
