Meeting With Australia Post Senior Management Regarding Saturday Services

Your Union attended a meeting in Melbourne late last week with Senior Australia Post management 

regarding the announcements made to the American Chamber of Commerce by the CEO, Ahmed Fahour, on the expansion of

services on Saturdays from next year.

We received NO new information and Australia Post management were adamant that the first they knew of the Plans

were after the CEO had made the announcements and that the CEO had made the announcements without

discussion with any of his most senior executives.

Australia Post management stated at this stage they have NO idea of how an expanded Saturday service would work and a “blank canvas”  exists.

We have written to Australia Post demanding that they withdraw a Q and A for Managers  that states your Union was briefed on how these changes would

affect members and how it would work.

At this stage Senior Management are not in a position to say how members would be affected as they have NO plans apart from the CEO’s statement.

We outlined a number of initial concerns with the proposal such as members being forced to work on Saturdays and Postal Retail outlets being forced into the red by opening up to limited foot traffic on Saturday.

We need to hear from you on your thoughts and ideas on the proposal to open retail outlets and delivery of Parcels and express Post on Saturdays.

Send an email to

We will keep you fully informed on events as they occur.
