Revenue protection by PDOs?

At the recent National Delivery Forum the CWU informed Australia Post that in some delivery facilities local managers were directing posties to ensure that every stamp on every letter had been cancelled.

In one facility the postie told the union that he holds the black marker used to cancel stamps in his mouth to try and speed up the process! Obviously, checking and cancelling stamps on every letter significantly increases the time it takes to sequence mail. If Australia Post wants posties to do revenue protection then they will need more time to sequence mail.

But Australia Post national management stated that looking at every letter to ensure the stamp has been cancelled is not in accordance with the directive. Instead the words used were “if you notice” a stamp has not been cancelled then cancel it. Click here to see the Operational advice.

If you are being directed to check every letter to ensure the stamp has been cancelled contact your CWU immediately so we can raise the matter with senior management.
