MEDIA RELEASE - Postal workers union warn resignation of Christine Holgate does not fix serious, systemic issues with management at Australia Post

The Union representing postal workers today said Australia Post’s workforce had been dismayed at recent management strategies including intentional underemployment, the move away from daily deliveries and a parcel back log that continues to grow out of control in many areas.

CEPU Communications Union National Secretary Greg Rayner said “There’s something seriously wrong when management thinks nothing of splashing out on Cartier luxury watches but delivers only cut backs and service cuts for the rest of us,

“The resignation of Christine Holgate won’t stop the rot at Post. 

“The rest of the so-called leadership team must be held accountable for this mess.”

CEPU Communications Union National President Shane Murphy said “Public confidence in this one-iconic institution will not be restored unless Ms Holgate’s resignation is the beginning, and not the end, of serious cultural change and reform,

“They are failing to deliver on the sole purpose of their existance – for the taxpayer, for their customers and for their workforce.“
