Telstra workers announce five days of rolling stoppages

Unions warn Telstra customers that services could be disrupted

The Communications Electrical and Plumbing Union (CEPU) has advised Telstra customers that services could potentially be disrupted from the weekend onwards due to five days of rolling stoppages.

According to a statement released today by the CEPU, overtime bans will be observed by Telstra workers on Saturday and Sunday, followed by a series of rolling 24-hour stoppages over the coming week.

A joint rally of CEPU and Community and Public Sector Union members will be held in Sydney and Melbourne on Monday, February 9.

The industrial action arose over disputes between Telstra and the CEPU over wage agreements. Telstra has said union membership covers 15 per cent of its employee base.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
