Major campaign starts in both ANZ National and Westpac

Finsec members in both ANZ National and Westpac are leading the charge to implement the Better Banks Agenda for Change. 

Union meetings in both banks have started this week as ANZ National and Westpac banks will be negotiating their collective agreements at the same time, and will campaign together to implement the Better Banks Agenda for Change.

 Finsec President Kelvin Pycroft said that the timing of collective negotiations meant that the banks would need to start working together as an industry to address common concerns. “The issues are very similar , regardless of which bank staff work for. Finsec has a plan for the whole sector that will improve customer service and address community concerns – we will be expecting banks to come to the table with a commitment to Better Banks.”

 Key aspects of the Agenda for Change include decent wage increases and pay parity across banks, increased staffing levels, 5 weeks annual leave after 5 years service, and changes to targets and incentive schemes. Finsec is also seeking an industry approach to better training and legislation to make our banking system and lending practices fairer.
