Fairfax needs to listen: Bandt

Greens Deputy Leader and workplace relations spokesperson Adam Bandt MP has expressed support for striking Fairfax workers and called on Fairfax management to listen to their concerns.

"Local newspapers need local journos," Mr Bandt said.

"It is clear that the new media environment means change is inevitable but it is important newspapers don't skimp on quality in adapting to change. Companies that can work with the workforce and include them in decisions are more likely to thrive."

"With Gina Rinehart attempting to push her way into Fairfax, it is all the more important that people support media workers standing up for quality media outlets."
