The CWU National Office has sought a commitment from Post that if an employee wants to leave during transition of the PostConnect business to ABnote then Post would allow them to take their redundancy and leave early.
We have sought the commitment because as part of the deal with ABnote, Post agreed that a number of Post employees would be available for transition of the Post business to ABnote. The Post deal on transition could impact detrimentally on employees who find a job elsewhere and want to leave early.
Post has committed to considering this on a case by case basis.
The proposed date for the sale of PostConnect is 31 January with PostConnect employees surplus as at 1 February 2015. The transition will vary from State to State and may vary between a few weeks and six months depending on the site.
