All the best to the ANZ staff who are on strike today:
ANZ workers walk off the job
ANZ Bank staff have today gone on strike across the country, with Wellington workers demanding the bank’s $4.1 million boss David Hisco stop ”ratting” on them. …
First Union’s retail and finance secretary Maxine Gay said Hisco earned 120 times more than the lowest paid bank worker.
”That’s $80,000 a week, more than most bank workers earn in a year,” she said.
”Yet he is offering his staff a low pay increase and wants to reduce security so workers would only know from one month to the next which days and start and finish times they are working.”
The bank’s workers are being offered annual pay rises of 2 to 3 per cent over the next two years, depending on where they work and when they joined the company.
ANZ, the country’s biggest bank, is also including a flexible work clause which gives staff four weeks’ notice of their shifts, with no guarantee hours would be spread evenly.
