The union has been fielding calls from some ANZ members reporting that the bank is requesting that they prove their union membership before their back pay and pay rise can be applied.
ANZ Career Training and Past Employee Career Funds
In June 2009, Finsec negotiated a major financial support package for staff who lose their job as a result of offshoring in ANZ National bank. Union representatives from sites affected by offshoring put the idea of a training fund to the bank, and the final package is a direct result of Finsec members work.
Up to $10,000 will be made available per person to fund training courses and a grant of up to $15,000 will be available per person in a hardship fund for ex staff members who are struggling to make ends meet. The hardship fund is open to any staff member made redundant, not just those who lose their job as a result of offfshoring.
