MORRISON GOVERNMENT VOTES AGAIN TO SLASH AUSTRALIA POST DELIVERIES

 

The Morrison Government has voted eight times over two days to slash Australia Post deliveries and threaten jobs and wages.

 

Today Labor Leader Anthony Albanese moved to disallow the Prime Minister’s regulations which cut the frequency of postie delivery rounds, extend mail delivery times for millions of Australians and put the jobs of up to one in four posties and many others at risk.

 

This follows Labor’s move to disallow the regulations on Friday.

 

Many Australians, including isolated, vulnerable and older Australians and those living in regional areas, rely on regular postal services.

 

The Prime Minister’s regulations rip away Australia Post services from Australians who need them most.

 

The Prime Minister has used the coronavirus pandemic as cover for an attack on essential services and frontline workers.

 

Labor considers the parcels boom an opportunity to preserve and create jobs — not cut them.
