From ACTU Secretary Sally McManus:

Do not cross the Fairfax picket line. No buying, sharing, clicking Fairfax while journalists are on strike.

Fairfax journalists have taken “illegal” strike action after the announcement that their employer intends to abolish near 1 in 4 jobs. They are fighting not just for their jobs, but our access to quality journalism.

Every worker should have the right to withdraw their labour in these circumstances, yet their decision is “illegal” under our current laws. They can be sacked or fined up to $10 200 each and their union much more. We need to show our support and solidarity.
