Here is a message VANA has asked me to publish:
VANA has been informed this afternoon of an Industrial dispute at The Age (Wednesday 7th May).
Fairfax Media Management has informed VANA of the following:
Fairfax have enacted their contingency plans and are taking every step possible to minimize disruption to newsagents and deliver as close to on time as possible. Call The Age Circulation info line on 13 23 01 for updates during the night.
Newsagents need to inform early morning staff of the possible disruption to tomorrow mornings production and distribution, and take appropriate action where required.
The VANA Team
The Guardian has a report on the strike and a threat from Fairfax to those of strike.
