NRMA Learns From the Big Boys
NRMA has joined the big boys by slashing branches, cutting jobs and putting customer service last, leaving anxious workers worried about how long they'll have a job.
Last week the company revealed plans to close 21 service branches, the Finance Sector union says.
At the same time NRMA announced that they will be spending $4 million dollars on upgrading 11 of the remaining branches.
While FSU agrees that there is a desperate need to upgrade some branches in the network, surely this shouldn't come at the expense of customers and your jobs.
The unions says it will be working closely with members to ensure job security and fair play throughout the process.
