NO PAy DEAL WAS REACHED AND PARKINg WAS FREE FOR ALMOST A FORTNIgHT” “ EDITORS’ CHOICE MAIN CITY motorists could roll the dice to skip parking fines today. Council workers are threatening not to issue infringement notices or clean city streets in their battle with City Hall over a new pay deal. High-level talks this morning may ease the deadlock. Check our website for the latest. 2009 17 NOvEMBER GEELONG ADVERTISER “The Monopoly front page got a huge response from readers pleased to see us trying some- thing different – and it sold well to boot. We made the most of a diffcult situation. The pay dispute between the council and workers was by far the biggest story of the day but we knew the warring parties were due to meet at 9am the following morning, meaning a peace deal could be thrashed out. If no deal could be reached then it would be free parking for all in the Geelong CBD with council workers refusing to enforce local laws. That term – “Free Parking” – got us think- ing about Monopoly and away we went. As it turned out, no pay deal was reached, and parking was free for almost a fortnight. The pay dispute remains unresolved.” EDITOR STEELE TALLON Steele Tallon Editor, Geelong Advertiser PANPA 2010 Year Book 11
