Exporting Better Banks


Better Banks looks set to cross the Tasman, according to Finsec conference guest Leon Carter, National Secretary of the Finance Sector Union of Australia (FSU).

 Leon Carter says that the FSU will run a very similar campaign to Better Banks and take an industry approach to issues for bank workers. “The issues for bank workers in New Zealand are the same issues for bank workers in Australia – performance pay, targets, bullying, sustainable lending, “ said Carter. “One of the benefits of making it a Trans-Tasman campaign is that the banks will need to understand that across the Tasman the unions stand for a better banking industry and that we are the progressive voice in relation to the industry.”

 Carter said that if Finsec and the FSU win the issues across the Tasman the end result is not only a Better Bank system in both countries but equally the banks will understand that any action that they take will be opposed when it is not in the best interest of the workforce on both sides of the Tasman. Finsec and the FSU will be discussing how to work together for Better Banks over the coming months.
