Tomorrow we are meeting with NAB to raise your concerns about the heavy-handed approach they have taken in relation to the RETAIL STAFF AFFIRMATION.
Feedback from members has made it clear there was immense pressure to sign the Retail Staff Affirmation in some regions and the whole approach lacks procedural fairness.
Staff weren’t even provided with the opportunity to get advice on their rights in relation to the document and were threatened if they showed a reluctance to sign.

Sales and Referral Targets at the Core of the Problem
The affirmation ignores the pressure on staff to meet unrealistic referral targets to keep their job and tries to define, in an unintelligible way, what constitutes a referral. It then finishes with a threat of disciplinary action which could result in the application of a Conduct Gate or a review of ongoing employment – totally ignoring any failures of leadership.
Senior Executives Should Be Signing Affirmations Not Front Line Workers
Given all that has happened since the start of the Royal Commission, FSU members feel it would be more appropriate that senior leaders in NAB signed an “Affirmation” to do the right thing by their customers, workers and the community.
Urgent Meeting Requested
FSU Reps are seeking an urgent meeting with the management team to put an end to this nonsense. If NAB genuinely wants to rebuild community trust and confidence, they need to do better.
