Post informed the CWU on 1 December that PostConnect had been sold to ABnote.
CWU members had been reporting for weeks that this was the case. Post continually denied it. It now seems a remarkable coincidence that ABnote is indeed the purchaser.
The CWU national office had already notified a dispute concerning lack of genuine consultation on PostConnect. This was scheduled for 2.30pm on 1 December in the Fair Work Commission in Melbourne. Coincidently Post came clean on the sale of PostConnect to ABnote just hours before the FWC hearing.
