More than 600 technicians employed by the NBN Co, the company rolling out Australia's national broadband network, will walk off the job on Wednesday as part of a national day of action.
The union representing workers at the NBN Co has levelled strong criticism at the company over the fact that chief executive Stephen Rue has given himself a $1.2 million bonus while overseeing a cost blowout of $6.7 billion and not taken 300,000 premises into account in the rollout plan.
The union that represents workers and contractors at NBN Co has described as "appalling" the fact that three-quarters of the staff are senior employees who earn six-figure salaries, while hundreds of jobs at base levels have been slashed.
Telstra workers across Australia will walk off the job on Wednesday (today) following what they claim is the company's continued refusal to provide them with fair pay and conditions.
Telstra employees are set to strike work on Tuesday after the company failed to reach an accord on pay and conditions with the union which represents the workers.
The union representing Telstra works says "Telstra’s already poor customer satisfaction levels will go from bad to horrendous if the telco pushes ahead with its plans to axe 8000 jobs".
The union that covers telecommunications workers claims the sacking of 400 more workers at Singtel Optus shows the "reprehensible contempt" that management has for the workforce.
The news that Optus will be axing 200 jobs across Australia due to its decision to phase out its subsidiary Virgin Mobile over the next two years has been described as "a devastating blow to workers".
The union that represents postal workers has asked Australia Post what steps it has taken to ensure that workers who handle packages containing returned Samsung Galaxy Note7 devices will not be put in harm's way.
