Union action may disrupt Commonwealth Bank branches

31 August 2000

The Commonwealth Bank today reminded customers that as a result of planned industrial action by the Finance Sector Union, some branches may be closed for around two hours on Friday morning 1 September and customers may suffer disruption.

Customers are asked to consider undertaking any routine banking transactions, which need to be completed through the branch network at a time other than Friday morning. Alternatively customers can use the Bank's extensive ATM, EFTPOS, Internet and phone banking systems or Australia Post and private agency networks to complete their transactions on Friday and over the weekend.

In the meantime, the Bank is taking whatever action it can to avoid or minimise disruption to customers and apologises for any inconvenience caused.
