They have really outdone themselves this time. A mammoth effort on behalf of Licensees! Simply astonishing in almost every word on both pages. Maybe we need to send them a dictionary so they can look up words like integrity.
Consider this post - did POAAL really lock our payments in to the agreement in 1990? And then every year since then send out notification to Licensees saying they have negotiated the annual increases?
The ACCC has requested that we provide the following letter to members who did not consent to participate in the Collective Bargaining submission.
I assume the rest of us will also be interested in reading this.
Published and underway
Please log on for members Q & As about the details of our submission. Comments are open on this topic for general information only.
There is a fair bit of chatter on twitter about the social value of the post office network. For anyone interested in that concept we provide some useful information on what that is
The formal submission is now underway and the clock is now ticking. LPOG has requested an interim determination (within 28 days) to allow for a more constructive participation in the upcoming round of negotiations for the annual review of the payments adjusted annually. We anticipate that interim determination will be handed down within that time frame, and will allow us to act accordingly.
On Monday the 8th May, the relevant documents that form the formal lodgement will be submitted to the ACCC. This includes the names of all financial members who have provided consent for their name to appear as a participant in the application to the ACCC for Collective Bargaining approval.
On behalf of the 160 licensees who sent in their consent forms in the last 2 days, thank you to the thoughtful and considerate LPOG members who took time out of their own work day on Thursday and Friday, to call around with their list of outstanding LPOs to remind them to get it in.
It is this sort of sharing and caring that has made LPOG a pleasure to be part of.
