Senate report slap in the face for Post

A Senate report calling for greater oversight of Australia Post’s pricing practices and an independent inquiry into plans to reduce the organisation’s Community Service Obligations is a slap in the face for Post.  Mr Fahour has been actively seeking changes to the CSOs.

The Senate report handed down this week recommends a full independent inquiry into the effect of proposed changes to the Community Service Obligations on all stakeholders, including licensed post offices, the mailing industry, Australia Post workers and the community as a whole.

The report also recommends restoration of the ACCC oversight of price increases for bulk lodged mail and the monitoring of service standards, as is currently the case with Post’s broader community service obligations.

There are 18 recommendations in the report.

The report confirms that greater oversight of Australia Post management is required to ensure that a significant public asset is not irreparably damaged, said Martin O’Nea, CWU Assistant Secretary.
