Westpac staff keep up fight on re-grading

In other job re-grading news, Finsec members are continuing to fight for fairness in the Westpac Cards Call Centre and Phone Assist roles merger. While staff don’t necessarily object to the merger, the new role is significantly more complex and requires a lot more knowledge.

Campaign cover girl and Union Councillor Ve Mika says the pressure needs to be kept on the bank to recognise the complexity of the new role. “We’ve basically doubled our workload and have a very strong message for Westpac.  Fair is fair, our jobs should be re-graded!”

Members have displayed posters at their workstation (featuring Ve) asking Westpac to do the right thing, and been sent many messages of support. Ve has been part of members standing up and getting the bank to change before, and says numbers are key.  “We think that the Head of Call Centres Helen van Orton is a reasonable person and I believe that if we can show her that enough people are upset, she will do the right thing”

A meeting has been set up with the Head of Call Centres Helen van Orton for Friday April 30 to discuss the issue. More messages of support welcome – just email michael@finsec.org.nz
