Our local CBA jobs are at risk – here's what we can do

As you may know, CBA has recently announced the offshoring of another 44 local CBA jobs to India. This follows an alarming trend at CBA where nearly 500 of our jobs have been offshored since 2021, placing those of us currently working for CBA at great risk.

But there’s something we can do to put a stop to offshoring for good. 

Our CBA Enterprise Agreement is an opportunity for us to address this crucial issue. Our Log of Claims includes a call for CBA to commit that no further work currently performed by CBA staff in Australia will be offshored or outsourced.

To achieve this, we need as many CBA staff as possible to support our Log of Claims.

Support our Log of Claims

While other banks such as Westpac are taking steps to bring jobs back to Australia, CBA continues to disregard its local workforce and the communities it claims to serve. It is crucial that we take action now to address these concerns and ensure the future of our jobs within the bank.

Here’s what you can do:

  1. Support our Log of Claims: Support our Log of Claims, which includes a stop to offshoring. Your support will strengthen our collective voice in addressing this issue during enterprise bargaining.
  1. Sign our open letter: Join us in asking CBA to stop offshoring local jobs by signing our open letter addressed to our CEO, Matt Comyn. The letter outlines our concerns about the offshoring agenda and its impact on job security, the community, and data security risks. To sign the open letter, please click here.
  1. Spread the word: Encourage our colleagues that are not FSU Members join our efforts and support the LOC. Share this email with them and discuss the importance of taking collective action to protect our jobs.
  1. Keep this issue in the spotlight: Keep an eye on our social media channels where we’ll be shining a light on this important issue. We encourage you to like, comment and share our content to keep this issue in the spotlight.

If you are directly affected by the recent announcement, please reach out to us at fsuinfo@fsunion.org.au

Remember, our job security is at stake – it’s 50 jobs being offshored today, it could be 100 jobs tomorrow.

Let’s act now to ensure that CBA’s commitment to its Australian workforce and the communities it serves is upheld.
