Ranfurly community to rally in support of Westpac workers

Date of Release: 
Thursday, August 25, 2016

The Ranfurly community will take a stand tomorrow afternoon against Westpac’s proposal to shut the town’s only bank.

“Westpac is consulting on a proposal to close 19 bank branches across the country, including the branch in Ranfurly,” said FIRST Union organiser Ken Young.

Staff submissions were submitted to Westpac on Wednesday. The bank is refusing to take community submissions.

“The Ranfurly community is going to send a message to Westpac and its management team. Small communities like Ranfurly need their bank branch.”
