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.
Would you like to watch the CEO explain the demise of the LPO. Please be advised that a strong drink in your hand may be necessary if you are a Licensee with your life savings invested in the infrastructure that this man is systematically destroying.. It starts out bad and then goes down hill.
We have Senator Abetz office to thank for this enlightening video. Unless you are a keen supporter of Senator Conroy you may wish to fast forward to 03:13 on video 1
Some recent forum posts discussed this document in relation to payments for LPOs. There were a few Licensees who were not familiar with this document. If you would like a hard copy for yourself you can request this document from your network office.
