Description of Conduct
The Queensland Newsagents Federation (QNF) sought authorisation on behalf of itself, the Newsagents Association of NSW and ACT (NANA) and the Victorian Newsagents Association (VANA) to collectively negotiate on behalf of their members with newspaper and magazine publishers and distributors. The QNF also sought authorisation for newsagents or groups of newsagents who are not members of the Associations but ask to join in any collective bargaining.
On 22 April 2009 the ACCC decided to grant authorisation to the QNF, NANA and VANA for a period of five years. This authorisation is granted subject to a number of conditions. A copy of the determination is available from the "ACCC decisions" link below.
