Metcher attacks $25million hand-out to private LPO operators
How absolutely thilling - BUT BUT BUT DON'T GET TOO EXCITED - unless Mr Metcher knows something we don't know. If only he had his facts straight.
During Wednesday’s talks, Mr Metcher with support of the other State Secretaries (again, apart from Victoria), led an attack on the $25million hand-out to private LPO operators announced by the Government as part of the reform package.
Licensees should let your own Posties know they might like to give this man a bit of a heads up on the realities of the situation if he is their union rep.
Saturday night dining is to be at the Club Burwood RSL, 96 Shaftsbury Road, Burwood. 02 87412888 at 6.15. This venue is a short(ish) walk from the Comfort Inn where many of us are staying.
Come and join fellow Licensees in a social gathering and get together. Ask at the club sign in desk for directions to where the LPOG gathering is happening. Although all should be able to find the noisy minority by now.
Minister for Small Business, Bruce Billson has been a very strong advocate for bring into law protection for small business.
As the government continues to strengthen the position for small business in the commercial world, this is another help for small business owners like Licensees of LPOs.
Remember the first days of the home computer, the big talk was that we were heading into a paperless world. Hands up anyone who does not buy paper by the ream now instead?
The Chairman of IBM, Thomas Watson, said in 1943, He thought there was a world market for maybe 5 computers. So the chaps who are now trying to convince the world that 'real mail' is a thing of the past, should probably make sure their names are not on any of their statements. One would expect Thomas Watson was none too please his name was forever attached to the computer line. So it is great to see that the call for the respect for the traditional mail is not just in our neck of the world......

Licensee Reform Update - Message from Christine Corbett.pdf -Check out your internal messages in your office.
The reforms package has been approved by the Government and suddenly we have a future.
It is expected that the BPR will rise to $1 in September. That will achieve a massive financial boost to thousands of Licensees. Close to a 60% increase on all BPR linked payments over the last 18 months.
We look forward to the report being prepared by PIP on all the rest of our payments, and then we will all be looking at a much different future. The rise in the BPR is not the solution to all of our issues, but it is certainly going to help a lot of rural and remote LPOs who earn most of their income from mail work.
