Dear Australian Broadcasting Corporation,

I seek a copy of the documents informing of redundancy sent to ABC ME staff in Melbourne in June 2020.

The redundancy is referenced within this article:
https://tvtonight.com.au/2020/06/abc-me-...

I ask that the usually applicable FOI fee be waived in this instance on the grounds of the operating of the public broadcaster being in the public interest, and financial hardship.

Yours faithfully,

Angus Ferguson
