Australia Post CEO disappointed, sad: The price you pay for standing up for members

Just a quick email to let you know I spent last Tuesday morning and most of Wednesday with the management team at Australia Post, hearing about their plans to "reform" the company. A lot was said at the meeting. Promises were offered but it appeared that we had to unconditionally support Post. We have not! We await written details to report to you.

The CWU National Office plan to fight back is underway with broad scale political and organising campaigns. Ahmed clearly expected us to roll over, and has sent me a letter, apparently demanding I do secret deals, instead of fighting for your job. 

I can’t speak for everyone, but I know your National Officials will always stand strong for your job. We’ll continue to listen to what Ahmed says, and we’ll tell him when he’s wrong… but he shouldn’t expect us to roll over.

Your union’s National Office is fighting hard for your rights. Your union officials are not there to suck up to the boss. You deserve better.

Ahmed wrote to me upset that I’m fighting for your rights, and I told him exactly where I stand.
