FSU and Westpac have agreed to continue to meet to discuss solutions and ongoing questions.

FSU will be holding report back meetings to share the details of Westpac’s response and based on that response, where to from here and what action we might be taking.
If you are impacted by the bank’s announcements it is imperative you attend a report back meeting and hear first hand what the bank has to say, and have your say about suggested solutions.
