Sir Michael Cullen will today give further details on the overhaul of NZ Post, with the scale of job losses in coming years set to be revealed.
Last week the Government hastily announced its new Deed of Understanding, which will set out the minimum service requirements of NZ Post from mid-2015.
It confirmed long-signalled changes, including reducing postal deliveries to three days a week to most Kiwi households as well as replacing many post shops with self service kiosks.
Chief executive Brian Roche confirmed at the time that the changes would inevitably lead to "hundreds" of job losses but declined to give details.
Today Sir Michael, the former deputy prime minister who chairs NZ Post, will deliver a strategic update on how the State-owned enterprise will look in five years time.
Although the update is being described as "high level", it is expected to include the likely scale of redundancies across the organisation.
NZ Post said in June that more rationalisation of its mail processing centres from six to three would see 500 jobs cut and 380 positions created elsewhere.
