Minimal Impact From Finsec Industrial Action

Minimal Impact From Finsec Industrial Action

The staff at ANZ and The National Bank are ensuring Finsec’s rolling industrial action causes minimal disruption to customers, ANZ National Bank Human Resources General Manager Andrew McSweeney said.

“The union’s action this week has affected a very small number of ANZ and The National Bank branches. We would prefer that Finsec puts its energies into holding paid worksite meetings for all its members to vote without pressure on the Bank’s offer, rather than calling rolling strikes.

“By refusing to hold these meetings, as offered by the Bank, we can only assume that Finsec does not have a mandate from its members for this action - particularly as we are hearing that more Finsec members are refusing to follow its calls to strike, and some are reportedly resigning from the union,” Mr McSweeney said. Contrary to Finsec’s claims, the Bank did not walk out of collective employment agreement negotiations last week, he said.

“That is simply untrue. Both parties agreed they could go no further in negotiations. We have always been prepared to talk constructively and move things forward with the union about our offer”.
