Breaking news – Westpac claims two year term despite current uncertainty in the economy

Westpac and Finsec have just swapped claims for the negotiations coming up in only two weeks time. The bank is seeking a two year term despite the turmoil in the economy, GST rises, inflation increases and major restructuring to the branch structure at the bank.

Other changes Westpac is seeking are
•    New requirement that could see many staff work on public holidays
•    Longer work window and flexible roster system in call centres
•    A clause on termination due to medical incapacity that provides fewer protections than a similar clause at ANZ and National bank
•    Removal of overtime for workers who agree to work longer than 7.5 hours a day as part of their normal work schedule

Pre-negotiation meetings in Westpac start next week. Make sure you attend to have your say on how you feel about the bank’s claims.
