The Department of Treasury has called for submissions on four options regarding fees/charges for paper based bills and statements in the latest milestone for our Keep Me Posted campaign.The options range from doing nothing to banning all fees/charges for consumers who wish to recieve their bills and statements via the traditional mail service. Members would be well aware of the increasing number of companies who charge a fee to tell Australians how much they owe!
Your Branch will be making a formal submission and we are urging members to do the same.Outlawing these unfair charges will increase the number of letters sent and will help protect your jobs
If you are involved with any community/advocate groups then please encourage them to make a submisson as well.
Here is the link to the Treasury submission page and the consultation paper that canvass the four options.
Submissions close on December 22nd
