Transparency urged in Holgate case

Australia Post yesterday called on former boss Christine Holgate to make her compensation demands public. It’s right, the government-owned company said, to be transparent about the process “given the public interest in this matter”. Earlier this week, Holgate threatened to sue the Australian Government over her departure from the company unless it agreed to the talks. She says she was unlawfully stood down over the purchase of Cartier watches as a reward for senior execs and claims she was bullied by both chairman Lucio Di Bartolomeo and PM Scott Morrison. Earlier this week, Holgate set  the deadline to commence mediation of last night – that wasn’t met by AusPost.  At a Senate inquiry hearing on Monday, Di Bartolomeo said he had “no idea” what claims the parties were supposed to be mediating, but Holgate says the issues were outlined in a letter to the company’s board last month.
