BNZ members to meet to launch campaign to recession proof our jobs

Finsec members at BNZ are heading into bargaining in October, and will be launching their campaign to recession proof their jobs at paid union meetings in mid August.

BNZ Union Council Chair Callum Francis  says a lot has happened since the last negotiations two years ago, and that attending these meetings is an essential to catch up on whats been going on in our industry and plan for a successful bargaining round. “We don’t have much time before we’re at the table with the bank, and we need to come together, decide what the issues are and how we can go about winning the changes we want.”

Callum acknowledges that this bargaining comes at a difficult time, with the recession and the BNZ facing a big tax bill. “However, there is evidence that the BNZ is a strong company in a good position to offer staff a fair deal. Our parent company NAB has just bought JB Were’s private wealth management business in Australia and New Zealand. If BNZ can afford this multimillion dollar expansion, it can afford to value its staff.”
