Andrew Spaull and Bob Bessant included the VSTA with the Victorian Teachers Union (VTU) and the Technical Teachers Association of Victoria (TTAV) in a study entitled Teachers in Conflict.
12) In 1986 Claire Kelly's booklet entitled Women in the VSTA described the policies that the OSCW produced and sought to expose and redress the structural disadvantage that female teachers suffered.
It then considers the development and implementation of the union's affirmative action policy up to the amalgamation of the VSTA into the Victorian branch of the AEU.
The VSTA followed this pattern as well by affiliating with ACSPA and when that organisation merged with the ACTU in 1979, the VSTA followed suit, and was represented for the first time at an ACTU congress in September 1979.
By the 1970s, when Bluett and Hopgood emerged as activists in the VSTA, post-World War II assumptions of masculinity and femininity were under challenge with the resurgence of the feminist movement.
In 1974, when Bluett and Hopgood began teaching, they were the beneficiaries of the hard-won policies of permanency after marriage (1956), equal pay (1967) and equal promotion opportunities (1970): all achieved through the efforts of the women members of Victorian Teachers Union (VTU) and the VSTA in a period of acute teacher shortage.
Formed in 1953, the VSTA was created when women were invited to join the Victorian Secondary Masters Professional Association (VSMPA) in order to prevent the establishment of a rival secondary teachers' organisation which included both men and women.
The male domination of the VSTA leadership continued up until the 1970s.
The VSTA gained its reputation as a militant organisation when it unsuccessfully took strike action in 1965 to achieve Tribunal reform.
Throughout the test, the EmulationEngine collects detailed statistics on a per vSTA basis of the operation of WPA as the product or network is stressed under variable Station and traffic loading conditions.
With this interface, users can create Perl scripts that configure an EmulationEngine, vSTA, and perform other functions programmatically as provided by the EmulationEngine CLI (Command Line Interface) and the EmulationEngine Web-Based User Interface.
