Targets pressure for Westpac Christchurch staff

Westpac staff in Christchurch will be meeting on Monday to discuss major pressure being placed on staff to meet targets despite the devastating earthquakes.

Finsec believes a survey of members in the region and an increase in the union helping members through performance management processes around targets show that the bank is operating as “business as usual” despite the impact of the quakes.

Hundreds of Finsec members at Westpac have already signed a petition supporting their Christchurch colleagues.

“Many members in Christchurch are finding life hard enough coping with the aftermath of the quake,” said Finsec General Secretary Andrew Casidy. “The unrealistic expectation that staff will meet target is adding insult to injury.”

Andrew Casidy has written to the bank twice about the issue and met with senior management, but says the bank has been unresponsive to the very real concerns members have raised and the urgency of the issue. “The meeting in Christchurch on Monday will be our opportunity to plan how to make the bank listen to its staff and lighten up on target expectations in Christchurch.”
