Small Business Commissioner to attend Adelaide Meeting
LPOG invites all Licensees to come to our Adelaide meeting to be held at Bookpower Australia, Hindmarsh SA.
We have loads to discuss and we have two special guests:
- Mike Sinkunas (SA Small Business Commissioner)
- Thomas Newton (SASBC Case / Investigations Manager)
Many of you will know us, and will have been following our progress since we lost our Mail Delivery Contract in October last year to a large Melbourne based Company.
As most of you are aware this contract formed the major revenue for our historic LPO. We WERE ready to close our doors after Xmas and walk away from our business, which we love dearly, and to which we have invested our life savings, and 15 years of service to Australia Post and our community.
We would like to share our good news, now that we believe the ordeal may well be behind us and our LPO looks to have a future once more.
A number of Licensees have reported that they have been advised that there stock account is on hold as they have exceeded their credit limit.
Enquiries with Credit Management have revealed that 'Management' have decided to reduce LPOs credit account limits to a pre set amount per terminal in your office. This is not yet confirmed in writing, but has been given verbally to several Licensees already.

There’s nothing more frustrating to me than a fence-sitter.
You know….. someone who prefers to say nothing or do nothing when it comes to having an opinion about things that matter. Someone who doesn’t speak up for what is right and what is wrong.
On the other hand, give me someone who has the guts to stand up for injustice, and I’ll shake their hand. They have my utmost respect. Whether it be a personal injustice or world injustice. To me this is moral courage.
We are now nearing the halfway mark to the extended date of 31/3/14 at which time the Senate Inquiry is due to hand down it’s findings.
I know many of us (myself included) have been champing at the bit for action, and any snippet of information regarding our progress to date, at both the negotiating table and our 23 point list of items to be settled with AP. So gather round...................
Invites all WA LPO Licensees to meet on Sunday 23 February 2014 at 10am to 12.30pm
East Victoria Park RSL Hall, 1 Fred Bell Parade, St James (Off Hill View Tce)
Come and connect with other concerned Licensees and help support our demand for fair and reasonable payments to restore the profitability, value and integrity back into our LPO Network. After Meeting-Lunch time networking (own cost) 1 pm onwards
Attention all Licensees......
If you received a pro forma letter from POAAL, to add your name and office, and send to the Senate Inquiry to request that Australia Post pay us as per the Payment Schedule,
Please do not do this under any circumstances.
The Payment Schedule is the root of our problems. Australia Post is paying us as per the payment schedule, overseen by POAAL. Without doubt that is the root of our problems and the cause of our underpayments and we do not support it in any way.
