The Finance Sector Union (FSU) is claiming to have saved 40 National Australia Banks jobs from being sent off shore.

FSU Communications Manager, Rod Masson, said workers at the NAB Discharge and Settlement Booking Line in Melbourne are celebrating the announcement today (Friday) that their jobs will remain here and not be sent to India as part of the banks off shoring plans.

Hundreds of jobs under review

Masson said the 40 workers had been part of the NAB's review of hundreds of back office jobs.

However the workers and the FSU defended the jobs by saying they had been recognised for their outstanding service delivery and should remain.

Contact centres 'exempt'

Masson said the workers also pointed out that they were a contact centre and that NAB should keep its word not to off shore any contact centres.

He said members had lobbied NAB Australia CEO, Ahmed Fahour, directly and presented the bank with a petition signed by staff.

NAB 'prepared to listen'

'We congratulate the union members who were prepared to take a stand against having their jobs sent off shore and we congratulate the NAB for being prepared to listen and stick to their commitment on contact centres,' Masson said. 'We now call on the bank to go one step further in protecting their reputation and employer credentials by making a commitment to the hundreds of other staff whose jobs are currently under review that their jobs will remain here as well.'
