ANZ National staff angry and betrayed at offshoring

Staff affected by ANZ National’s offshoring have now had the opportunity to attend Finsec meetings to discuss the move and consider the union’s next steps.

Reports the meetings in Auckland and Wellington are that bank staff are feeling shocked, angry and betrayed about the move. Staff report that different teams have been told different things by management about the impact of the offshoring, which is adding to confusion.

Finsec members who attended the meetings say they are uncertain about the future, and feel paralysed about making financial or other decisions while not knowing what the future holds. This effect was even worse for some families where both members of the couple were employed by the bank.

Staff at these meetings supported a collective letter to ANZ National CEO Graham Hodges, and agreed with the guarantees Finsec is seeking from the bank.

Comments from those attending the meetings include:

“We need to keep the economy going in our own country.”

“Who knows if it will only be 500 staff, it could be more and more.”

“If this is not a cost cutting measure then what is the point of this?”

“We want to be part of the process, we want genuine union consultation and we want a guarantee of this – it’s the least they can do.”
