Please pay my income protection insurance, my policy was accepted by you and completed by and under the advice of your Commonwealth Bank financial planner.

In July, 2013, my daughter was diagnosed with a bone infection.  After several months of hospital visits and alot of fighting with doctors and nurses to get my daughter the care she needed (we were turned away from our local hospital 3 times without seeing a doctor and the one time we did I was told she was making up not being able to walk because I was a single mother who worked full time, we had to travel 2 and a half hours to the next town so that I could get her admitted to the hospital there) I was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).  My employer made me redundant due to 'business operational issues'.  My Income Protection insurer (CommInsure) said that my claim was accepted via phone and sent me paperwork, a few months later when I still had no money coming through I discovered they were attempting to find medical history to cancel my policy.  After another few months they found something and accused me of lying on my form, later they agreed that I wasn't aware and understood I acted on advice from my financial planner when completing the form (he advised what was and what was not relevent) and so called it 'innocent non-disclosure' - and still cancelled my policy.  I have attempted to discus this with CBA on numerous occasions and have been told that since I have nothing in writing from my financial planner when I set up the claim I can not fight this descision.  My question is how and why would I have anything in writing when the process is that the paid financial planner does all of that?  How many other clients of his are in the same position as me or don't know that they are paying for a policy that would only be cancelled if they made a claim?  And why do CBA staff keep apologising to me for what happened but do nothing to help? During my battle with PTSD I was also battling with CBA, unable to focus wholelly on my own recovery.  My daughter and I had to move out of our home and I sold alot of our personal possessions.  I have since (almost a year after my diagnoses) moved us back into our home and returned to work.  I am now battling to catch up financially.  I am faced with the horrible reality that selling our home may be the best option for my daughter and I.  I attempted to survive off a single parent pension and begging creditors to give me financial hardship.  I can not discuss my hardship with a CBA financial planner (despite paying a premium which covers the cost of one) as CBA advised my financial planner to cease any contact with me.   I would like CBA to review their duty of care, to check all of my financial planner's client files and to pay the income protection insurance payments they advised me they would pay before cancelling the policy. If they were to pay out this claim (approx $25,000 - a very small amount considering their annual profit margins!) I would be able to stop the ongoing calls from creditors and pay the arrears on my mortgage, ensuring that my little girl and I can stay settled after an already very rough time.   Thank you for taking the time to read my petition.  Please help me keep our home and raise awareness of CBA's terrible duty of care and poor practices.

Namibian police, stop assaulting people. End police brutality NOW. #Help_me_find_Michael!

I was a assaulted and kicked by a group of police officers and thus almost lost an eye on Saturday the 11th of August 2018 for taking pics of a police officer by the name Michael who assaulted me before the severe attack with his colleagues on and threatened him of posting his pictures on social media. They confiscated my phone and handcuffed me and thus kicked me in the abdomen and face. They demanded for the pics to be deleted for them to hide their identity. I know one of the Police officers that was present at the scene and she works at Katutura Police station. I opened a cased against Michael for perpetrating violence but the Police officers refused to help me. I explained everything to the station commander and later they agreed that I can open a case. I opened a case. Police officers are now threatening me on Facebook that my docket will be lost coz they will never investigate their colleagues for assaulting people. Some of these are officers that were present when I opened the case. I want the police to investigate this case urgently and help identify Michael, a member of the City police . Michael must apologize and compensate for the damages and misery he caused.  I want the police to investigate and bring Michael to order. I want justice. We are tired of docket getting lost when it's police officers involved but they keep locking up taxi drivers each an everyday struggling to put bread on the table. I want JUSTICE.

Stand up - Protect Australian Steel Industry, return Arrium to it's legitimate owners

An unjust and disgraceful administration in Australia corporation history is in the making! We request that you get involved in this important matter with the qualifier that whatever happens with Arrium will be remembered for generations. Returning the company back to its shareholders is the only just decision rather than selling it off in pieces to non-vested parties only to create uncertainties to the workers and all other stakeholders. Arrium Steel (previously known as OneSteel) with local steelmaking heritage dated over 100 years ago, together with the Middleback Ranges iron ore mining, ports and distribution network are the strategic assets that empower Australia economy activities, collectively help building the nation and have provided employments to large numbers of workers with moderate skills, providing them with stable jobs and good benefits. The overall Australian steel industry employs 90,000 workers in 2014-15. Despite the manufacturing industry in Australia has declined from 30% of GDP in the 1960s to 6.8% of GDP in 2014, manufacturing products such as structural and reinforced steel continued to represent a core source of economic prosperity for Australia. Without these vital businesses, roads, rails, building construction and many infrastructure initiatives could not have been developed as they are today. It's a national imperative to keep the steel manufacturing industry strong, sustainable and in Australian hands. Arrium is the 4th lowest cost iron ore producer in the world + with its ports, rails, integrated steel manufacturing and world class distribution makes it a remarkable long term sustainable Australian business. Granted, it had a heavy debt burden albeit with the recent sale of Moly Cop this has now been rectified. As a reminder, liquidators only do one thing well “liquidate” with absolutely no consideration whatsoever for medium and/or long term legacy nor for any consideration to any other stakeholders other than their clients and their own fee generation situation. We simply are absolutely convinced that all stakeholders can be made 100% whole and Australia will be a better place afterwards when returned to shareholders than the current process conducted by a liquidator. It’s important for us to clarify to you what has changed since administration! 1) - Moly-Cop has now been sold for AUD 1.6 billion to reduce debt to a manageable level, 2) - Iron Ore Division Iron Ore prices have been more than doubled since its lows December last year and it is now trading at multi-years high at USD83, The announced washing plant technology improvement with loan supported by the federal government will add another $50 million per year over the next 5 years by improving the grade of iron ore mined, The expiration of higher rate shipping contracts in September 2016 will reduce the mining cost for around AUD 5 per ton. Which will add another AUD 50 million per year to the bottom-line, Partnership with CDE Mining to process and convert 17 million tons of low grade iron ore fines in waste dumps into saleable product, 3) - Steel Division Steel prices have surged over 50% since its lows, Anti-dumping policies Australian federal government announced few months ago will further support the recovery of steel prices over the longer term horizon, Potential deals with Oz-Mineral and others in the pipeline regarding the Whyalla port facilities,  In addition to the fact that the company is now in very good shape, if the company continues to be liquidated the negative consequences include: All the unsecured creditors will only get back between 50 to 70 cents in a dollar of unsecured debts as reported, Shareholders including many employees will get nothing and the accumulated tax losses of the company will be lost forever, If the buyer is a foreign entity, the Arrium Australia steel and mining businesses will operate as subsidiaries of the foreign company. Foreign company generally has an appetite to maximize profits by shifting some parts of the business offshore including back office, customer services and technology causing more jobs losses in Australia. The purpose of voluntary administration is to attempt to turn an essentially insolvent company around to maximise its chances of continuing. This is now the best opportunity for all stakeholders putting their self-interest aside to work together to return the company back to its legitimate owners and to keep the national important assets in Australian hands.

The Boort Business & Tourism Council, along with the Boort community, are extremely concerned by the recent announcement of the proposed closure and downgrade of services by the Commonwealth Bank Boort branch. The closure will have a significant impact on local businesses and members of our community.   By forcing our local residents and business people out of town to complete their basic banking needs, it would also, undoubtedly, encourage out of town shopping.  This will have a massive effect on the patronage in our local businesses, an issue which this committee has been successfully striving to improve over the past few years. Access to banking is a vital service which must remain in Boort to ensure our viability in the future.  Our town boasts a strong community, well established and successful local agricultural businesses, more than 50 small businesses servicing our community, large companies investing in our area and a brand new school with more than 200 students.  Not only will our residents, tourists and businesses have no access to the local branch, but our students will also lose access to the school banking program. We understand the current trend towards electronic banking, but there is ALWAYS going to be the need for face-to-face banking in our community.  The CBA should remember that they are in a service industry and the customer should be treated as a priority. Please don't close our local CBA Boort branch........

Stop the Closure of CBA Beecroft Branch

The Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) Beecroft Branch will be permanently closing on Friday, 12th October. This is a very disappointing decision, since this community-focussed bank provided a significant amenity for local businesses and Beecroft residents. I understand that the habits of customers to take their banking online is seeing some significant uptake, and that is becoming increasingly difficult for banks to justify the expenses of running a branch. Nevertheless, it would be great to see CBA listen to the concerns of the community, and I call on the CBA to take actions to prevent the closure of the CBA Beecroft Branch.

Work-related stress is one the leading reasons for absenteeism. This issue stems from the inefficiencies in place from long working hours. Research has demonstrated that long working hours have severe negative implications on employees’ health, which then affects business productivity. The Work To Live campaign aims at building awareness and creating favourable attitudes around work place solutions, such as reduced working hours and concrete flexible work place policies for the benefit of workers as well as businesses.
