Union to meet eceivers over ABC centre closures

2:36 pm on 10 November 2008

The union representing 12,000 ABC Learning staff in Australia is to meet receivers on Monday to try to ensure all centres stay open.

Last week the federal government announced a $A22 million package to bail out the centres until the end of the year.

Receivers have said that up to 40% of the centres may have to close.

However, the ABC reports that the Liquor, Hospitality and Miscellaneous Workers Union wants to know how the receivers have decided that 40% of the centres are not viable.
