Aust Post Pharmacy Home Delivery announcement a welcome move: Union

Australia Post’s announcement today that it will launch its Pharmacy Home Delivery Service is great news for both workers and the community, the CEPU – the union representing Australia Post workers – said today.

Australia Post’s announcement today comes after the Federal Government agreed to allocate $25 million to fund home delivering medicine during the COVID-19 crisis. 

CEPU Communications Union National PresidentShane Murphy, said the union has been in constant discussions with Australia Post to ensure that everything possible is being done by the company to not only support its dedicated workforce, but also to ensure Post’s services are used to support the community at large. 

“Australia Post workers have always been ready to do whatever it takes to help Australians through this crisis,” Mr Murphy said.

”Australia Post is in a unique position to be able to offer vital services, like the home delivery of pharmacy products, to Australians. It’s great that workers will now be able to provide this important service to the most vulnerable members of our community.

“Australia Post workers have remained stoic and dedicated through recent times. The community spirit displayed by workers has been second to none. 

“Australia Post workers are already playing a vital role during this crisis. This move to allow them to also deliver import pharmacy products will allow our workforce to do even more to keep our community safe.

Mr Murphy said the union has been working closely with Australia Post management to ensure that everything possible is also being done to keep workers themselves safe. 

“We’re in constant contact with Australia Post to make sure that as things change, the safety of our Australia Post workers remains a top priority.”
