Aussie unionists seeking new agreement with Westpac

Finsec’s sister union the Finance Sector Union is also making some unfavourable comparisons between banks’ pay and conditions , in this case between the merging St George and Westpac. Australian Westpac staff are on an agreement that expired in 2004 and contains far worse provisions than the St George agreement that expires in 2010.

St George staff have a guaranteed 4% annual pay increase, commitments to replace staff within 6 weeks, paid rest breaks and allowances for relief staff while Westpac staff enjoy none of these. St George staff also have more generous long service leave and severance pay than their new Westpac colleagues.

The FSU says its time for a new Westpac Agreement as employees in the new Group will be doing the same work under different pay and conditions.
