Workers find a voice on community radio

From an old terrace building in Collingwood, 3CR broadcasters present more than 120 radio shows a week. The community radio station was established in 1976 to give a voice to those too often locked out of the mainstream media. Today, it broadcasts 24 hours a day, seven days a week with the same goal.

Stick Together is one of the shows recorded in Melbourne each week and broadcast nationally though the community radio station network. It is Australia’s only national radio show focusing on industrial and workplace issues.

Reporters take listeners to pickets and strikes to hear directly from workers dealing with the pointy end of the bosses’ attacks and interviews with union officials to provide an insight into the dynamics of our unions.

Recent Stick Together shows have looked into the government’s PaTH employment scheme, discussed the uses and abuses of 457 visas and reported on the long-running Fletcher Insulation strike.

Stick Together
