Moment a Sydney courier is filmed performing a disrespectful act on a Gladys Berejiklian parcel

Courier is sacked on the spot after deliberately mistreating parcel addressed to Gladys Berejiklian – and proudly posting the video online

  • The CouriersPlease worker filmed himself at a sorting facility with a package 
  • He discovered the package was addressed to NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian
  • ‘You know what you do with this?’ he said, before throwing it across the floor
  • CouriersPlease said in a statement the worker was ‘dismissed immediately’ 


A freight handler who threw a package addressed to NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian across the floor has been sacked after footage of the incident went viral. 

The CouriersPlease worker filmed himself in a sorting facility as he came across a black-wrapped package with the premier’s address details on the label.

He then shouted out to a fellow worker: ‘I got a shipment to Gladys… you know what you do with this?’

He then threw the package about four metres onto a concrete floor before turning the camera around and pretending to spit into his mask in an act of disrespect.

‘I got a shipment to Gladys… you know what you do with this?’ the handler said, before throwing the package across the floor

‘CouriersPlease has been alerted to a video circulating on the internet in relation to a parcel addressed to the NSW Premier’s office.’ the company said in a statement. 

‘The content of the video in no way reflects the values or code of conduct, at CouriersPlease. 

‘The freight handler in the video was dismissed immediately as part of our investigation and we are also speaking with our franchisees and employees to ensure everyone adheres to our code of conduct.’ 

The incident reflected growing frustration with Greater Sydney’s extended lockdown, now in its tenth week and which has failed to slow the continual increase in case numbers.

Despite the government effectively ditching its initial target of driving down case numbers and instead focusing on increasing vaccinations, the lockdown will continue for at least another month.

NSW recorded 1218 locally acquired Covid cases and six deaths on Sunday, the highest daily tally throughout the pandemic.

Ms Berejiklian has said her government will restore a limited amount of personal freedoms – and only to fully vaccinated residents – once the state hits 70 per cent double-dose coverage.

Double-dose coverage would reach 70 per cent around mid-October if the current rates of vaccination continued, although international experience indicated rates tend to slow past the 60 per cent mark.

‘We will stick to our word,’ Ms Berejiklian said on Sunday.

‘No matter what the case numbers are doing – of course we want to see them come down – double-dose 70 per cent in NSW means freedom for those who are (fully) vaccinated.’
