POB overpayments have now been transferred to our stock accounts. As alarming as that is, it has happened and Licensees need to be aware. Apparently there was comms about this happening via outlook messaging last week sometime.
NOTE: Towards the bottom of the side bar you can find a POMs Login button for anyone who is having trouble accessing the portal without their email link. You still need your log in details to get into the portal, but the button will take you to the portal to log in screen.
Have you worked out how to run this, and get stuff the rest of the Licensee network should know about and use to help run the LPO.

There has been many request from members about who LPOG will support in the upcoming election. The short answer is any party that supports Licensees.
There are some standout champions for our cause, and for staying power it would be difficult to find better allies for us than Qld LNP Senator Barry O'Sullivan and SA Senator Nick Xenophon. These two have really led the charge to keep our issues alive and active in Canberra. However LPOG members have spent the last 4 years building support with politicians from every party. It is fair to say we have probably focused on the Senate as they have a broader state view of our issues, rather than individual electorates.
Australia Post has confirmed that only the initial supply of express post satchels will be via a corporate outlet, as the MP Licensees will be exchanging the pre paid Toll satchels they currently supply, for the AP satchels that will now be their core product. After that it will be as existing with supply being from the LPO if that is where the MP drivers have been sourcing the stock. So the initial concerns being raised today are not as we heard. There may be other issues with Mail Plus yet to come, but supply being restricted is not one of them supposedly. LPOG executives are meeting with AP and Mail Plus on 20 May to "consult" on how we can work together to progress our combined businesses.
Lots of Licensees contacting LPOG about news from Mail Plus Licensees today. LPOG understands that at a Mail Plus Conference over the weekend, Mail Plus Licensees have been informed that they will be only able to deal with stock purchases from corporate outlets from now on.
This is not what was promoted by Australia Post or Mail Plus to LPOG. We have contact Post for urgent clarification of this news to seek facts at this stage.
Apart from viewing the 2 different Representative bodies at the Senate Inquiry, http://parlview.aph.gov.au/mediaPlayer.php?videoID=213194&operation_mode...,
or the Senators comments following the tabeling of the Senate Report http://www.lpogroup.com.au/content/senate-inquiry-final-report-supported...
its fair to use the following youtube clip to explain a lot. POAAL had exclusive rights to manage the LPO Agreement for all of it's 23+ years. They were the only accredited Association Licensees had to turn to in all that time. It is inconceivable that POAAL was unaware of the inequity of the grapes and the cucumbers situation that was happening in our LPOs every day, for 20 years. If they were unaware, it is probably worse.
Have at look at this clip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=meiU6TxysCg
It is breathtaking to see how quickly the monkey in this clip twigged to the inequity of his situation. And gobsmacking to realise that it took Licensees so long to see what needed to be done, or that there are still Licensees out there who still don't get the fair pay issue. The swift return of the cucumber is probably the most enlightening thing I have seen for quite a while.
It could be viewed as a demonstration of the origins of LPOG.
were guests at the Terry Ashcroft and LPOG Trade Day in Sydney. The RNP teams spent the whole day networking with Licensees, discussing one on one issues and showing Licensees the new POMs payment system. Fair to say that was very well received, and much appreciated by Licensees who attended.
New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, Australian Capital Territory and Queensland to perform a self-pay transaction as the last transaction on the last trading day of the month – Saturday 30 April if your Post Office is open on a Saturday and Friday 29 April if your Post Office is closed on a Saturday. This will ensure you get your correct interim payment between the 2 systems in the quickest possible timeframe.
SA, NT and WA were cut over to the new Licensees payment system, POMs, last month. They were the guinea pigs! There were the usual teething problems but it seems that the rest of us will be moving over from next month. Excellent news for those of us keen to be able to drill down into every aspect of our payments. Could be our new hobby, seeing how much we were paid to deal with some of our not so favourite transactions. Then again, maybe we shouldn't!
