Is this the end? : Newspapers and Apprenticeships during the pandemic

Wednesday, 12 August 2020 - 8:30am to 9:00am
Regional print media in crisis

This week we've got plenty of news to update you on some of what's been happening for workers during the pandemic. We also hear from Brett Edgington, Secretary of the Ballarat Regional Trades and Labour Council about ACM's announcement that it will close their printing factory in Wendouree with over 130 jobs lost. We continue the discussion Annie started last week about the huge impact COVID-19 is having on regional media. 

Then we'll hear from Scott Collom, an outreach organiser with the Young Workers Centre about how apprentices are struggling to continue their training at TAFE and on the job due to ongoing restrictions and uncertainty.
