MICHELLE ROWLAND MP
SHADOW MINISTER FOR COMMUNICATIONS
MEMBER FOR GREENWAY
RESIGNATION OF THE AUSTRALIA POST CEO
The circumstances which have brought on the resignation of Australia Post CEO are regrettable.
Scott Morrison mustered up all the confected outrage in the world about $20,000 on watches, yet when his own Ministers rort taxpayers he turns a blind eye.
The Australia Post Board is stacked with Liberal Party hacks and mates of Scott Morrison. Even on their best day, you wouldn’t call these Liberal directors the C-team.
The decision to use COVID-19 as opportunistic cover to cut services, attack 1 in 4 postie jobs and increase delivery timeframes, was wholly ratified by the Australia Post Board.
Anyone who thinks these issues will be resolved through a change of CEO is kidding themselves. This Board must be cleaned out.
The Chairman has been asked to appear before a Senate Committee hearing next week. If he again refuses to come, Labor will move for the Senate to compel him.
