Financial Review BOSS Article

Licensees may find it enlightening to source the June 2013 Volume 14 Financial Review Boss magazine. Sit down with a stiff brandy ( make sure it is after your days work - brandy and all that) and read the article.

You will not have trouble identifying which article will be of interest!

Then join LPOG ASAP.

You might be able to find this at the local library, LPOG have requested a digital link. It will be posted if it is available when we have a response.

'Les Miserables"

Notice to L.P.O.s and Unpaid Commissions

When the new CEO took over Australia Post 2.5 years ago he said "I will not run a business which costs the Australian Taxpayers money".

We are Australian Taxpayers and the Post Office is costing all of us money. The unresolved debacle of parcel scanning costs all of us both time and money. Money owing to LPOs now goes back several months, when APO were advised of our request for increased commission.

A United Voice Speaks Clearly

Dear Licensee

Late last year you forwarded a number of emails to this office from other people regarding Australia Post. 

I thought you might be interested to know that this office has received a number of complaints from constituents across the electorate on matters to do with Australia Post, but most specifically with the viability of regional postal contracts.  In response Tony wrote to the Minister and the Shadow Minister on the matter – I attach these letters for your reference. 

2013 Review of the Franchising Code of Conduct

2013 Review of the Franchising Code of Conduct

Small Business - Too Big To Ignore

Licensed Post Offices are the major part of the Australia Post retail network. We represent Australia Post in almost 80% of the network. We are too big for Australia Post to ignore. We need to be speaking with one voice and demanding a fair and equitable slice of the booming business that is Australia Post. Our income has been increasingly eroding over the last few years while Australia Post has been reporting our loss as their profits, and reaping corporate bonuses for executives based on that erosion. Enough is Enough.
