Workers from Fairfax's print division have given management a deadline of October 8 to answer questions over the timing of the closure of two major printing plants and job cuts.
Australian Manufacturing Workers Union members today unanimously passed a resolution calling on Fairfax management to meet the union and workforce within the next week.
Fairfax in June announced 1900 redundancies across the company and the closure of print sites at Chullora in Sydney and Tullamarine in Melbourne.
AMWU assistant state secretary Leigh Diehm says the union is angry that three months later, they do not know when and how the redundancies will be rolled out.
Fairfax management has agreed to meet the union, Mr Diehm said.
"The company has put various offers on the table, but they are not properly engaging with people around things like timing, (and) how much redundancy," Mr Diehm said at a meeting of union members outside Fairfax's Melbourne office on Monday.
"There needs to be discussions around training. Where are they going to print the tabloid version of The Age? There's a lot of things that people need to know to plan their lives."
He said management has so far been attending meetings with the union, only to "tick a box".
"Fairfax, for some months now, has refused to consult (and) have proper consultation with their employees and their union," Mr Diehm said.
AMWU state secretary Steve Dargavel branded Fairfax's existing offer "ridiculous", but would not discuss the details of it.
"It's one thing to announce everybody is going to lose their jobs, it's another thing to work through with the workforce when and how that is going to occur," Mr Dargavel said.
