The only person that is confirmed to have been given a permanent position with ABnote to date is the Head of PostConnect. How unexpected is that?
Any wonder the PostConnect manager’s first SIB for 2015 to the ex-PostConnect employees who have been kept on to show the new mob how to do their jobs, waxed lyrical about ‘it being good to be back’ and ‘a new year presenting fresh opportunities’.
Meanwhile, ABnote employees will be working in PostConnect sites as part of the transition arrangements agreed by Post for the sale to ABnote. The transition arrangements will be different in each State. When Post works out exactly what they are, they will share them with CWU State branches and ex-PostConnect employees who, in typical Post fashion, are being kept on for Post’s convenience. For instance, the PostConnect (now ABnote) WA site has been relocated with Post employees kept on for the transition period now expected to travel further with no relocation allowance!
Members should contact their CWU State branch to help them through the RRR process or the CWU National Office.
