CWU National Office has again raised concerns with Post about the consultation process in relation to the outsourcing/possible offshoring of End User Computing (EUC) Services in Post’s Information Digital Technology area.
Post has told the union that no decision has been made regarding EUC. But members have told the union that a company called UXC has been invited to tender for the work.
Post has a duty under the Enterprise Agreement 2013 to consult the union prior to making any significant change. This includes any decisions to outsource /offshore work. The union has a right to influence the decision before it is made.
We have now asked Post whether they have made a decision to go to tender on all or some aspects EUC services work? Has Post involved UXC in any discussions or in seeking a tender from UXC for EUC services work? And when and how will Post comply with its duty to consult the union?
We have now received Post’s response. “We (Post) have received submissions from a number of managed service providers and are in processing of analysing those submissions with a view to developing a proposal as to how we (Post) can better manage and deliver EUC services”. Reading between the lines clear work will be outsourced. Question is will it go to UXC or some other company?
