Telstra proceeds with dispatch reorganisation - with modifications

Telstra will modify some aspects of its proposal to centralise and automate scheduling and dispatch functions. But the changes will not be enough to prevent redundancies in the area.

Telstra has advised the CWU that as a result of consultation with employees and with the CWU it will now retain 15 more Field Dispatch Officer (FDO) roles than originally planned.

It is also reconsidering the location of the key site for Southern region and is seeking a centralised Melbourne CBD site that will be accessible for a greater number of employees affected by the proposal than either the Burwood or Werribee sites would be.

Both Burwood and Werribee sites will be retained while the search for a new site is being undertaken. If a suitable site is not found, the Burwood site will be used.

Overall, however, there will still be a reduction of 159 roles while 101 new roles will be created under the new structure.

That means at least 58 redundancies and possibly many more, depending on how many people can be redeployed.
