Hey Australia Post - Snail Mail belongs to the People

Hey Australia Post - Snail Mail belongs to the People

Bring back daily postal deliveries and have only a one speed delivery service. Do not make people pay more than the standard rate to get a reliable daily postal delivery. Inquire into the quality control of mail delivery to make sure that mail is reaching its destination. Keep Australia Post public.

Why is this important?

Australia Post belongs to everybody. The charter for Customer Service of Australia Post states that they are required to be (a) "making the basic letter service available to all Australians on an equitable basis" and (b) "consulting directly with affected local communities when proposing changes to an existing one". Contrary to these committments, the delivery speed now discriminates according to how much you pay and no customers were consulted about this decision. Australia Post and the Prime Minister justified the change by stating that the business side of Australia Post is losing profit by propping up the regular mail. However, they seem to have forgotten that (a) the regular mail is core business and ensures a monopoly to the non-core businesse AND (b) Australia Post belongs to the public (at least for now). The CEO of Australia Post receives a large salary when the job of the postal delivery is not being done!
