Suncorp has proposed to change its hours of operations within Motor Claims – Customer Engagement.
This proposal will involve Suncorp outsourcing weekend lodgment to a company called WNS from 24 June.
Most specialists who currently work on the weekend will move to a Monday – Friday roster, though some Shannons and Niche products will still be serviced on Saturdays with reduced hours.
What does this mean for us?
We have heard from FSU members that this proposal will have disastrous impacts on their finances and lifestyle.
Many members are facing a reduction in their pay, with some looking at an annual reduction of over $15,000. Members are telling us that these changes will mean they cannot afford their rent or mortgage, and will not have enough money to put food on the table.
We are hearing from members who will be unable to secure childcare with these new rosters, as well as people who will need to give up study.
These changes will mean that FSU members are seriously considering their future with Suncorp.
How are we responding?
The FSU has submitted extensive feedback and questions to Suncorp, which you can review here.
We are expecting to hear back from Suncorp on 4 May 2023 about whether these changes will go ahead, and in what form.
