Tips and rumours

Will Fairfax swing the axe on budget day? ... Westpac decision just good business ... dispatches from the culture wars ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

When will Fairfax swing the axe? The consultation period between Fairfax management and staff over proposed cuts worth $30 million ended last week. Now it's the waiting game until the company announces just how many jobs will go from The Age, Sydney Morning Herald, Brisbane Times and WA Today mastheads. Will management time the announcement to coincide with either tomorrow's Victorian budget announcement or next Tuesday's federal budget in order to make it harder for staff to go on strike? Fairfax staff have already threatened industrial action over the cuts, which come after 120 staff were made redundant last year. Know more? Drop us a line here. You can remain anonymous if you wish.

    If these fossil fool cheerleaders think so much of this Adani project let them club together to supplement Adani – mortgage their homes and whatever it takes.

      Good idea, rather than putting our money where their mouths are.
