The AUSTRAC statement, and media reporting of serious allegations against Westpac, have been felt across Westpac and its employees over an intense 24-hour period.
Earlier today, the Finance Sector Union sought assurances from Westpac Employee Relations executives that all necessary staff support processes would be in place for this most difficult period.
All Westpac employees should access employee assistance schemes should they feel the need to do so. If you wish to use these services, please see your Westpac People Leader in the first instance.
As employees, you are the backbone of Westpac. It is important for you to know that the Finance Sector Union of Australia supports you 100% through these, and other, difficult times.
In Unity. Always.
National Secretary, Finance Sector Union
