LPOGroup would like to express our appreciation to the Environment and Communications References Committee, for their hard work and dedication to unraveling the truth in this most confounding loss to Australia Post, and Community Post Offices in particular. Our gratitude to Senator Pauline Hanson and Senator Malcolm Roberts for listening to us, and accepting our concerns were real, and calling for this inquiry. Perhaps meaningful change will be the best result from this inquiry.
The full report, including the Executive Summary and Recommendations can be viewed, or downloaded, by following the link below:
While we have been divested of the best CEO, the Senate Committee has delivered a report that may bring about some long term future gains for Licensees, if many of the recommendations are actioned instead of being binned. Overhauling the Board, ensuring parcels and financial services are included in the CSOs, delivering guarantees to the nation about future plans to stop flogging of any parts of Australia Post for short term political gains, and removing the unholy alliance between the Minister and the party hacks given Board positions.
The Report can deliver the script for so many new conversations with our own federal members, and that can assist to sure up these gains so the community Post Office network does not find itself back in this position in another 10 years time. Breaking this cycle will be a good outcome.
