We are calling on Qantas to ensure highly skilled, secure jobs in Australia by:
- Returning all Load Control work to Qantas staff in Australia
- Committing to working with the ASU to manage current and future workload.
The return of international flying should be a cause for celebration.
But Qantas has decided to use this as an opportunity to send our highly skilled work offshore.
Qantas Load Control workers perform safety-critical work to ensure that our planes and people travel safely and efficiently across the globe. Our people in Australia have the skills and capability to meet the demand for Load Control from the first international flights on 1 November, and the determination to meet the challenges of the months ahead.
Rather than using highly skilled Qantas workers right here in Australia to meet the needs of international flights, Qantas is sending this work to a third-party contractor overseas.
