Despite enormous company profits and the rising cost of living, rates for freelancers at Nine have been going backwards for over a decade.

It's time for Nine to respect its freelancers.

Freelancers who contribute to the Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Australian Financial Review, Brisbane Times and WA Today are standing together for:

Fair minimum rates and annual rate increases
Timely payment following submission
Superannuation for a secure retirement
“Kill fees” for commissions that are cancelled by the outlet
Retention of all copyright
Indemnity from defamation
Respect for the MEAA Journalist Code of Ethics
Clear dispute resolution options
