MEDIA RELEASE - LABOR WELCOMES EXPANSION OF BANK@POST AGREEMENT - 15 OCTOBER 2018

Labor welcomes the addition of two more major banks to the Bank@Post community agreement.

Expanded participation will help support the provision of banking services through Australia Post Office outlets which serve many communities who do not have a local bank branch.
 
Importantly, this agreement will help deliver a fairer deal for Post Office licensees, which is a welcome step given many licensees have been doing it tough.
 
Labor hopes to see an agreement to bring all major banks on board, and congratulates Australia Post and its CEO Christine Holgate on the progress made to date.
