“We cannot dominate the parcels business with disgruntled staff”

Members weigh in as EBA10 surveys start flowing in

Last week your Australia Post EBA10 campaign kicked off – and we’ve hit the ground running.

Officials across the nation are visiting postal workplaces and speaking to workers about impending bargaining and ensuring their workplace is Unionised.

Most importantly, members are being strongly urged to have their say in our national survey – a massive process currently being coordinated by your National Office and State Branches right across the country.

This process is crucial to ensure the claims we are preparing to advance when bargaining commences genuinely reflects the most accurate snapshot of the needs and desires of our members and their families.

Members can complete the survey online or via paper-based copies currently being distributed to members’ homes and workplaces.

Since launching, members have flocked to the campaign website to have their say – and our members don’t hold back.

Here is some of what you said were the biggest challenges facing your workplace and Australia Post, today:

“The safety of the workforce, managers lacking honesty and integrity, Australia Post purchasing wrong types of vehicles, that will cause long term injuries to staff”

Transport – Victoria

“Casualisation, production before safety, slow wage growth”

Processing – Queensland

“Extra staff to help with workloads especially extra parcels. More full time staff or extra hours. Extremely disappointed with the authorised holiday taken away, it is really appreciated after an extremely busy time at Christmas. It sometimes feels we are not valued as staff anymore. By taking this away it really gives low moral because people are tired…”

Retail – South Australia

“Employing buck saving tactics that empower the worst kind of people to run the company like schoolyard bullies will not help us survive in the market… We cannot dominate the parcels business with disgruntled staff.”

Delivery – New South Wales

 “Lack of staff due to redundancies causing heavy workloads and high pressure…”

Corporate / Admin – Western Australia

“Lack of information transparency as a result of an ‘us VS them’ mentality brought about by non-transparent management…”

Technical / Engineering – Queensland
