ANZ National members voting now

Finsec members at ANZ National have been voting on the bank’s offer in meetings that began this week. Union Councillors have been travelling around the country running meetings and talking the issues over with union members.

Union Councillor Andy van der Heyden has been travelling to run meetings in Palmerston North and Horowhenua. “It’s been a great experience for me, but I am seeing first hand the anger that is out there towards the bank, especially about their claim to exclude ‘C’ rated staff from the pay increase.”

While this feeling is not necessarily reflected in voting, Andy said that Finsec members were angry that performance was being linked to negotiated pay increases. “People are seeing this move for what it is – the first seed of performance pay.”

Andy said there was a strong awareness that Finsec members need to grow our density to have a greater impact on negotiations. “We also know that it’s important for all the members we have to be active to get the change we need at work.”

An important part of getting active is making sure you attend your local meeting and vote in the ratification. 60% of members need to participate for the vote to be valid. Meetings continue next week.
