FSU members’ views on returning to the workplace

FSU recently conducted a survey of Westpac Group Staff to gather your views on returning to workplaces as restrictions begin to ease. Hundreds of staff have completed the survey, sharing their views on working from home, targets, annual leave, and health and safety measures.

Results are in

Given the recent increase in COVID cases in Victoria, and NSW hot spots, we have seen a tightening of restrictions. At the same time survey respondents have shared they are becoming increasingly worried about their health and safety. Key themes of concerns are social distancing, supply of personal protective equipment, and hot desking. If you would like more information, including a fact sheet, on any of these issues contact our Member Rights Centre or email us at fsuinfo@fsunion.org.au

Next steps: FSU Zoom Session, Weds 22

Due to recent reports received and the survey results we are holding a zoom information session this Wednesday evening to answer questions about annual leave entitlements and the key question:

Can I be directed to take annual leave prior to 30 September?

Register here to attend.


We will have more to say about work from home and the future of work in the coming months.
