MEAA Online

A national meeting will be held on Sunday May 2o (10am-12pm AEST) to discuss important changes to the grading process. All members of the stunt community are encouraged to attend.

The Equity Stunt Grading Procedure is the only recognised professional grading process for stunt performers and safety supervisors in Australia, and one of only five recognised systems in the world.

An Equity Stunt Grading Certificate is considered clear evidence that you can be trusted to work safely as a stunt professional on set.

NSW: MEAA Federal Office 245 Chalmers Street, Redfern.
VIC: MEAA Victorian Office, Level, 3 365 Queen Street, Melbourne.
QLD: MEAA Upper Coomera Community Centre, 90 Reserve Road, Upper Coomera.

If any MEAA members in other states or territories want to join the meetings please contact Nikau Irvine

What do you want to say?

Here are some suggestions about the kinds of things you might want to include in your submission:
  • What is the media like where you live? How much diversity/concentration of media is there in your area? How important to you is media diversity and having a wide range of voices and opinions? Will the takeover reduce competition/diversity in the Australian media sector?
  • What Fairfax and Nine publications and programs do you consume? What attracted you to them in the first place, and what do they mean to you/your family/household? What will be the impact of the takeover on the choice and range of media you consume?
  • How distinct is Fairfax journalism – what makes it different?  Describe a story or stories published by Fairfax over the years which have made a difference to you/had an impact on you/changed the way you think? What would your life/community be like without the journalism that Fairfax produces?
  • Who are the Fairfax journalists you always read/trust?
  • How important is fearless, independent journalism? What will be the impact of the takeover on investigative journalism and does it increase the risk of that independence being compromised by the commercial interests of the proprietor or its advertisers?
  • What else do you think the ACCC should consider when ruling on this takeover, and what would you like the ACCC to do?
