Formal Lodgement Done

The formal submission is now underway and the clock is now ticking. LPOG has requested an interim determination (within 28 days) to allow for a more constructive participation in the upcoming round of negotiations for the annual review of the payments adjusted annually. We anticipate that interim determination will be handed down within that time frame, and will allow us to act accordingly.

ACCC Formal Lodgement

On Monday the 8th May, the relevant documents that form the formal lodgement will be submitted to the ACCC. This includes the names of all financial members who have provided consent for their name to appear as a participant in the application to the ACCC for Collective Bargaining approval.

Big Thanks to the Phonecallers

On behalf of the 160 licensees who sent in their consent forms in the last 2 days, thank you to the thoughtful and considerate LPOG members who took time out of their own work day on Thursday and Friday, to call around with their list of outstanding LPOs to remind them to get it in.

It is this sort of sharing and caring that has made LPOG a pleasure to be part of.

POMs - Down Again

Many Licensees are finding that the POMs self payment option is not available far too often. Some Licensees are suggesting that their pay is not available more than 30% of attempts. 

Australia Post advises that the POMs self pay is very rarely down, but that does not match Licensees experience.

EPOS Outage

AP HQ has advised that Telstra are experiencing some network issues resulting in some LPOs (and CPOs) being offline.

Telstra have commenced resolution of the issue as a priority.

The EPOS Help Desk has been notified and an outlet message will be sent.

Terry Ashcroft's Trade show

is on again on the 28 May, 2017 at the Greyhound Social Club in Yagoona.

This Tradeshow was originally set for 26 March, but this date has clashed with other commitments so it got a move.

There will be a range of suppliers exhibiting on the day and Terry is about to send out notifications to all NSW Licensees. As soon as Terry has published the invitations and confirmed the attendees we shall publish here.

LPOG will be making the most of this current opportunity offered by Terry to explore our best options and tools to help us understand our business and to increase our chances to survive and even prosper in our changed environment. So come along and check out what new products you can offer, network with fellow licensees, educate yourself on our new business tools, and see what we can do to build on our future with LPOG and Australia Post and Terry Ashcroft.

General Information for LPOs regarding ACCC Action

Time is running out if you wish to be included in this action. The consent forms must be lodged with the ACCC once the submission goes public. The list of participants will remain confidential but the ACCC must be notified of the participants. We anticipate that this will hapen in a little over a week. So if you are going to get around to it, better get around to it very soon.

The LPOG has notified all LPOs of the intention to seek approval from the ACCC to undertake collective bargaining for our members for our payments, both established, and new payments, and our trading terms and conditions. LPOG has also requested that Australia Post support this process, so that we can all find a more constructive process to establish what are fair and reasonable commercial outcomes for our shared future.
