Post proposes to outsource all End User Computing (EUC) and some Enterprise Technology Services (ETS) jobs to Fujitsu. Approximately 108 jobs are affected nationally.
The CWU national office believes these jobs are worth fighting for. We have therefore put the matter in dispute in the Fair Work Commission. Post has frustrated requests for information and meaningful consultation on the EUC review from the very beginning. Only after questioning by the union did Post inform that future options for EUC were all about outsourcing the work. The Post briefing sessions have not provided a genuine opportunity to influence the decision before it is made.
Some CWU Branches are satisfied with just working with Post on the redundancy arrangements. Your national office however, has asked that Post defer taking the decision to outsource EUC and ETS to the Post Board on 8 May 2015 to give the union and members the opportunity to put alternate proposals to save jobs.
Obviously the workers affected are very disappointed by Post’s decision. Some have been through a restructure last year. There can be no guarantees that work won’t be off-shored. The only person confirmed to have a job in the new structure is the manager.
