ANZ Career Training and Past Employee Care 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.

The latest ANZ Quarterly forum report-back to members - which summarises key issues FIRST Union members asked their national representatives to discuss with senior management at ANZ - was emailed to all members on 18 March 2016.  If you did not receive this report please email to receive a copy.
