Licensees across the country need to contact their local federal members, as a matter of urgency, and discuss the dire situation facing Licensed Post Offices today, before it is your office that it is too late to save. Over the last few weeks several Licensees have had to make the very difficult decision to close their doors and walk away from the business that they once proudly purchased. Many Licensees live with the daily fear of their valuable business income being striped away from their businesses to benefit the corporate arm of Australia Post. Daily we see examples of customers being poached by ruthless account managers, customers enticed to shop online with offers of prices below our wholesale costs, stock delays or cancelations, mail contracts being downgraded or passed onto cheap alternatives, payment rates and profit on sales being cut or removed, new transactions being denied to the LPOs, and an ever increasing workload expected to be performed for little or no financial return.
This is not the way to run a successful Government Business Enterprise and Licensees need to stop thinking that they have no option but to accept the road to doom. Licensees purchased their businesses in good faith, with a solid expectation that they would enjoy a healthy and comfortable future, working hand in hand with the corporate partner.
