Redundancies : LUSENET : Friends of the ABC : One Thread

I've heard that the ABC has already started making staff redundant following the budget disaster.

Apparently at least one staff member in Queensland was given notice on Friday.

I don;t have any other details.

can you confirm?

As yet there have been no post-budget redundancies announced. The ABC Board is meeting this Thursday and it is reasonable to assume that the depleted budget will be discussed, in addition to how the ABC can sustain core programming in the circumstances. It is also reasonable to assume that at some stage redundancies will be at least considered. You can't keep running an organisation on what amounts to the fiscal value of a piece of string and two flat rocks. (Sorry, just had to get it off my chest)

I have further information that a Philip Gerard Cullen was given notice of redundancy by the ABC in Brisbane on Friday.

My contacts say that the reasons given were on "economic grounds".
