Where is the ABC's strong union? And could it take advertising?

I only listen to ABC Radio, mostly 891 plus the classical music program and occasionally Radio National -- never any of the commercial networks. I value the quality of most ABC TV programming, except I pray for a week or even a day free of Stephen Fry’s self-satisfied smirk. I’m not a totally satisfied customer, and I’ve long suspected that working at the ABC is a cushy number for those lucky enough to get into it. The fact is all the good Monday-night TV programs have already shut down for the summer -- not due back till February -- and radio presenters get a very long holiday over the summer, with weeks off here and there throughout the year.
