The work of the ABC in regional Australia is more vital than ever. 工作时间非常长, 强化工作, 无法实现的KPI，平均工资25美元,比城市里的低1000万, 美国广播公司的员工无法在这些地区维持职业生涯.
工作人员 have also called for action on racism and sexism in the workplace at the ABC. A rigorous gender and racial pay gap audit will help our ABC to be a fair and safe workplace, and to effectively tell stories that reflect the diversity of the Australian public.
而高管们则享受着巨额奖金, staff have been offered pay at half the rate of inflation and junior staff might losing their overtime buyout pay with less than 2 weeks’ notice.
工作负载失控, 尽管政府重新拨款, ABC management are refusing to review them and relieve the pressure.
Our goal is an editorially-independent ABC that is fully-funded by the government and meets its charter as a comprehensive national broadcaster, that is resourced to tell Australian stories across multiple platforms, and positioned to take advantage of new technology to retain its position as the most trusted and reliable source of news and entertainment in Australia.

For more than 80 years, the ABC has touched the lives of all Australians in one way or another.
它是否在观看 发挥学校 当我还是个孩子的时候，我就在争论三J 100年最热的 与朋友, tuning into our favourite radio programs or keeping up-to-date with the latest news and current affairs, the ABC plays a pivotal role in informing and shaping our views about Australian life and contributing to our sense of nation identity.
然而，长期以来，ABC被认为是理所当然的, receiving less and less funding from government while providing more services than ever before as new technology has evolved.
今天, the ABC delivers content across four television channels, 在线, 到你的移动设备或数字收音机. 美国广播公司在发生危机时向社区通报情况, through our vital national emergency broadcast service. We take for granted that the ABC delivers its suite of services to us wherever we are, 当我们需要的时候.
When the ABC is required to do so much more with less, it’s inevitable the cracks start to show.
我们都喜欢美国广播公司. We are proud of what the ABC represents in Australian lives. But the rate of technological progress has far outstripped the funding made available by successive federal governments. That means it’s getting progressively harder to maintain a strong ABC now and for the next generation of Australians.
The ABC’s “make-do” solutions to the chronic massive underfunding crisis are unsustainable.
We call on the current Australian government and other political parties to commit to the following 5 principles:
1. Restore ABC funding to a sustainable level over the next two ABC triennial funding agreements.
The ABC cannot continue to provide Australians with the level of innovative and comprehensive broadcasting services required under the ABC Charter without the significant restoration of the $254 million in funding and 400 jobs which have been stripped from the organisation.
2. Respect the editorial and programming independence of the ABC as enshrined in the ABC Act.
Governmental interference in the ABC undermines the integrity of its news coverage and it must always be independent of any political influence.
3. 保持ABC 100%不含商业广告.
The vast majority of Australians do not want commercial advertising disrupting their ABC programs and services or on ABC websites. Further the ABC’s position as our most trusted source of 新闻 relies on the ABC being free of commercial influence.
4. Curtail outsourcing and do not seek to privatise or commercialise any parts of the ABC.
Since its inception in 1932, the ABC has been one of Australia’s most loved public institutions. New technology and anticipated changes to media ownership mean that now more than ever, Australians are reliant on the ABC to tell their stories. The ABC must retain control of its functions including its internal production, if the ABC is to fulfil its Charter obligation and represent and reflect regional diversity.
5. 培育和保留多样性, skilled workforce that can create and deliver exciting Australian content.
Increased casualisation and centralisation of ABC jobs in Sydney and Melbourne are deskilling and demoralising the ABC workforce. 作为公共事业单位和模范雇主, the ABC has a responsibility to provide secure jobs, whole of industry training and model working conditions.
