The Tertiary Education Union says it will fight for every employee as Victoria University considers up to 260 job cuts.

The university has a $33 million deficit to fill, citing declining enrolments and revenue as the reason for potential restructures.

The Tertiary Education Union's Victoria University branch president, Dougal McNeill, spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
