Finsec members’ success in changing proposal to cut opening hours

Finsec members at Westpac Takaka have a great success story about how when staff get together through our union, they can have a positive impact on work and be listened to!

Staff were stressed and worried about the impact on both them and their community of a proposal to cut opening hours – resulting in a 30% decrease in income for some staff. Through Finsec, they co-ordinated a fantastic submission to the bank that discussed not only the effect on staff but how reduced hours would affect the business.

The bank listened to Finsec members and shelved plans to cut opening hours. Finsec member Robyn Mackay says that staff were happy to be consulted with, and even happier to be listened to. “The outcome was a good decision. We have a good team here and we now feel valued. We’re now able to move forward and deal with restructuring without the cut in hours hanging over us.”
