Finsec meeting Bill English to discuss job security next week

Finance Minister Bill English has done an about face and agreed to meet with Finsec to discuss job security in the banks, and our peititon to make employment a conditition of the bank guarantee schemes. This meeting is to take place next Wednesday.

Finsec Vice President Maxine Mullen says that Bill English agreeing to the meeting is evidence of the power that Finsec members have when they work together. Prior to the release of the petition, the Minister had said he was not available to meet with Finsec. “After delivering a 10,500 signature petition and the issue being discussed in Parliament and in the media, Bill English managed to find the time in his diary,” said Maxine. “Finsec members taking action made this meeting happen.”

Finsec General Secretary Andrew Casidy said the meeting would give Finsec an opportunity to get the government on board and supporting Finsec members’ and the public’s call for the banks to step up and do more for their staff and customers. “We’ll be putting forward a series of practical steps the government could take now to protect Kiwi jobs.”
