Around 1998 4ZZZ, 4MBS, and Family Radio started broadcasting from the one installation at Mt Coot-tha. Prior to this 4MBS and Family Radio had merely leased land beside 4ZZZ but then Brisbane City Council decided that having three transmission towers and huts in the one place was an eyesore and encouraged the three radio stations to share facilities. This resulted in the three radio stations developing a company called Broadcasting Park to negotiate with the Council. This company consisted of three shares, one owned by each member station.
Unions mark Workers' Memorial Day
Last year 32 people died at their workplaces in Queensland and 185 nationally. So far this year 48 Australians have died at work.
Queensland Council of Unions called for changes to laws that require 24 hours’ notice before unions can enter a workplace to inspect a safety breach. In South Australia, Greens senator Tammy Franks will introduce a bill to parliament seeking to create a new offence of “industrial manslaughter” for cases of reckless negligence by employers.
