With the Communications Workers Union (CWU) calling for a National Senate Inquiry into what it calls the "shambolic NBN network", over 100 subcontractors arrived outside the NBN Co North Sydney office to "protest against the NBN Co's shambolic management and pyramid contracting scheme that's leaving workers struggling to make ends meet."
The union that represents workers and contractors at NBN Co has described as "appalling" the fact that three-quarters of the staff are senior employees who earn six-figure salaries, while hundreds of jobs at base levels have been slashed.
Journalists at the well-known American technology news website WIRED have walked off the job to protest against the delay by its owner, publishing giant Condé Nast, in allowing staff to form a union.
