Save ANZ Jobs

    1. Petition by

      Finance Sector Union (FSU)

ANZ is one of Australia’s most profitable banks. Last year it made a record $5.36 billion profit. But still it’s crying poor.

The bank has just announced 1000 jobs are to be cut, and some of these jobs will be sent offshore and filled by overseas workers. ANZ’s Australian CEO Phil Chronican has not ruled out further job cuts in the future.

ANZ can afford to keep every single job.

These aren’t just numbers on a spreadsheet, these are people. People with career aspirations and families to support; people who have given their all to help make ANZ profitable, some of them for many years.

These workers are the people who process your loan and credit card applications, who make sure the bank’s IT systems continue to operate, who assist with your mortgage application, and provide the necessary back up and infrastructure for the workers on the bank’s front line. They are essential to the business of providing professional service to ANZ customers. Can we really do without them?

ANZ, along with our other big banks, benefited from the government guarantee during the Global Financial Crisis.

The bank profits from our community, and the bank should give something back to the community by investing in Australian jobs and skills.

Tell Australian CEO Phil Chronican to save ANZ jobs rather than sacrifice these workers and the bank’s long term capacity to provide comprehensive local services.

      Domestic workers rights must be protected from the unequal bargaining power of large international employers especially where domestic operations are being moved offshore in order to minimise the employers obligations to upholding workers rights.

      we shouldn't simply be angered because the ANZ is exporting jobs overseas, but because we have a highly skilled workforce as well as the rule of law that governs labour & environmental standards and importantly privacy.
