Mark Scott’s announcement on Tuesday that the ABC is closing down TV Production in Tasmania has met with a fierce backlash nationwide.

Last month, Mr Scott told a Senate Estimates Committee that he was unaware of any plans regarding the future of Tasmanian TV production.

The ABC announced its decision as a fait accompli on Tuesday before the ABC had consulted with affected employees or their union.

The CPSU has lodged a dispute with Fair Work Australia this afternoon regarding the ABC’s failure to consult. We are also working with ABC supporters and Tasmania members who are understandably angered by the announcement.
