Age columnist on strike over pay cut

The Age’s columnist Catherine Deveny has said she won’t file another column until her pay dispute with the paper is resolved.  

In a posting on feminism blog The Dawn Chorus, she said: “Yes I am on strike but not… for a rise but have been fighting a massive decrease for six months.”

She added: “The column has not been axed. I have told them that I am not filing ’til the issue is resolved. Enough’s enough.”

Paul Ramadge, the paper’s editor, told ABC radio: “Well, there are some discussions about is there a contract or not, and those are ongoing and it’s not fair to go into any more detail than that. It started and it still sits on the issue of money.”
