Post claim the alternatives put by the CWU working party do not meet their objectives. But this is rubbish. The work is simply going to the lowest bidder. Post expects to save $5-8 million.
The CWU working party had 1 objective - to save as many jobs and services as we can. Post had 4 objectives. None of these are about saving your jobs.
We proposed an internal tiered system of EUC services to improve choice and transparency. (Post’s 1st objective) Post said no.
We said re-negotiate staff numbers retaining a core group to improve scalability. (Post’s 2nd objective) Post said no.
We said create a multidisciplinary group to improve access to new technology. (Post’s 3rd objective) Post said no.
We said address the inefficient management practices to deliver services quickly. (Post’s 4th objective) Post said no.
But outsourcing, like many other recent management initiatives, doesn’t work. It costs more. It leads to poorer service delivery.
In the circumstances, the CWU national office has requested a meeting with the Post Board to present the CWU working party proposal. Click here to see our letter to Post.
