Westpac plans to close Murray Bridge branch, union says
But customers will still be able to access Westpac banking services in person.
Two Murray Bridge banks may soon share their premises under a cost-saving measure proposed by Westpac.
The local Westpac branch, at 28 Bridge Street, is expected to close in the near future, according to the Finance Sector Union.
However, customers will still be able to access Westpac banking services at the Bank SA branch on the corner of Bridge and Seventh Streets.
Bank SA has been owned by the Westpac Banking Group since 2008.
Staff have been notified of a proposal to close 48 branches around Australia, according to the union.
It is unclear how many staff may be re-deployed and/or made redundant locally.
However, the union suggested 165 staff would be affected across the nation.
The arrangement with Bank SA means each of the big four banks will still have a presence in Murray Bridge, as NAB and ANZ each have branches on the main street and the Commonwealth Bank has one at Murray Bridge Marketplace.
People’s Choice Credit Union also has a branch at the Marketplace.
