Dispute re use of Contract Labour at Melbourne North PDC

Your Branch has listed as a dispute the proposed use of contact labour at the new Melbourne PDC site at Somerton.

The sorting of Parcels is to be automated with the installation of a new Cross Belt SorterĀ Machine.

Australia Post are proposing to have a certain proportion of the Machine staffed by contact labour for the terminating product from 12.00am onwards .We are strongly opposed to any automation in any facility in Victoria been staffed by any form of contact labour.

We have sought a final meeting with Australia Post to resolveĀ the dispute and failing that we will be left with no option but to escalate the dispute to the courts.
