A banking outage this week is still affecting thousands of workers who are now heading into the weekend without being paid.

ANZ tweeted on Wednesday that they had identified an issue where business payments weren’t being processed, meaning leaving businesses unable to pay their employees.

However, despite the bank ‘successfully’ processing the ‘vast majority’ of the business payments on Thursday, many workers are facing the weekend without their wages, or any real assistance from ANZ.

Charter bus driver Hollie, from Perth, said her workplace’s payroll put through their wages on Tuesday.

“[Our pay] usually rolls into our account on wed,” she told 96FM.

“Well, it’s Friday and no money. Now we are being told it MIGHT go in on the weekend but more than likely Monday.

“Our workplace has about 250 people waiting on wages and I’m sure there are many many more.”


She also added that there had been “zero” help from ANZ.

“I’m just annoyed cos so many people are gonna default on direct debits… this is causing issues with their credit files.”

On Friday, ANZ tweeted they were continuing to process payments.



The bank says the outage is not affecting the ANZ app, ATMs or personal internet banking services such as transferring money between accounts.

As for Hollie, she’s conceded that she could be in for a frustrating weekend.

“I just checked my account and still no wages.”
