Union questions bank's show of corporate citizenship

Good citizenship begins at home

Finsec, the union for bank workers has asked questions about the ANZ's introduction of a volunteer community service scheme that allows staff one day off a year on full pay to do community work.

"Our members would like to remind the bank that good citizenship begins at home," said Geraldine Molloy of Finsec.

"At a time when ANZ staff are unable to take their sick leave, domestic leave and bereavement leave because of low staffing numbers, Finsec members at the ANZ may not be particularly impressed with the bank's show of benevolence," Ms Molloy said.

"While we are pleased to see the bank's recognition of the voluntary sector as the driving force in New Zealand's economy we hope that they will provide relief staff on the days that volunteers are taking leave."

"Otherwise the community will be poorly served, yet again, by a bank they already hold in low esteem," she concluded.
