Media briefs: Fairfax, SBS journos get peanuts … Random House grovels … Rupert’s files …

SBS staff are fuming after being offered just 0.5% a year in pay rises. And other media tidbits of the day.

Fairfax staff down tools as SBS journos gape at lowball offer. Fairfax staff have donned their “Fair Go Fairfax” shirts once again today, after staff meetings rejected management’s latest offer of “merit-based” pay rises for the newsroom. Staff are also seeking permission to go on strike for up to three days from Wednesday next week, and they’re stopping work for one hour today from 11am to noon to protest against the offer.

    Let’s not waste too much time wailing over SBS journalist pay. They’re quite well remunerated by industry standards, even those who aren’t much good at the craft.
