Westpac members using last week to recruit for pay parity and more staff

Gordon Lindsay, Westpac ThamesFinsec members at Westpac have been using the last week before negotiations begin to grow their membership and ensure all members and non-members sign a collective letter calling on Westpac to become a Better Bank.

To convince Westpac to become a Better Bank Finsec members need to show they have strength. The two things that send the strongest signal of strength to the bank are the support of all workers as shown by a growing number of members, and lots of members taking part in activity. This shows Westpac workers all support the issues being raised.

During the negotiations the bank will decide how much of its $600 million profit it is going to spend on its staff and what issues it will target that money towards. If Westpac staff present a united front before negotiations begin the bank is more likely to respond to the issues that matter to workers, rather than its own issues.

At negotiations banks often claim that people who are not union members do not support the unions claims. The only way workers can let the bank know they are serious and want to see change is to join Finsec.
