UNION CALLS FOR INVESTIGATION OVER OPTUS' RACIST JOB ADVERTISEMENT

The Union representing Optus workers has slammed a racist job advertisement and says an independent investigation and a transparent review of the telco's hiring policies must follow immediately.

CEPU Communications Division National Secretary Greg Rayner said, “That this racist job ad was published is an affront. Optus leadership should provide a full explanation and cooperate with an independent investigation. 

“Workers and the community must have confidence that businesses in Australia are not allowed to get away with blatantly racist hiring practises. 

“How did this racist requirement end up in an ad at all? Is it an unspoken rule or understanding that slipped through the cracks? This is extremely concerning and we have to get to the bottom of how this happened. An internal investigation is not enough.”
