Dan Dwyer's action to take Australia Post to court over their lack of consultation over the mail restructure has worked, with Ahmed Fahour conceding that he needs to consult before making decisions. After Friday’s action in the courts, Ahmed has called an urgent consultation meeting with the CWU National Officials on Tuesday.
Welcoming Ahmed’s response, Dan Dwyer said, “it’s time Post consulted in a meaningful manner that allows your Union to have a real say on the future.”
Your union’s National Officials are fighting hard to protect the idea of an affordable next day delivery service for all Australians. The CWU National team believes in fighting for permanent jobs, strong protections, and good pay for all postal workers.
The National Office continues to fight on to stop the changes that Malcolm Turnbull and Ahmed are trying to introduce. Martin O’Nea, who is leading the fight, said, “the Senate hasn’t agreed yet, and it’s the duty of every official of this union to stand up and fight for our members’ jobs. So far, we’ve succeeded in securing five day a week delivery."
The National Office continues to investigate Malcolm Turnbull’s claims that Australia Post are ‘working very very closely with the union’. No National Official of the union has been involved in selling out members.
