TWU wins QF case

Travel Daily - - News -

QAN­TAS work­ers will re­ceive thou­sands in un­paid wages after the air­line lost a Fed­eral Court case with the Trans­port Work­ers Union (TWU) this week.

The air­line ini­tially re­fused to pay work­ers for pub­lic hol­i­days, week­ends, over­time work and al­lowances by stand­ing them down to en­sure they just re­ceived the JobKeeper pay­ment.

Trans­port Work­ers Union Na­tional Sec­re­tary Michael Kaine ac­cused Qan­tas of be­ing caught out “tak­ing tax­pay­ers’ money while rip­ping off its work­ers”, la­belling the saga an “abuse”.

The judg­ment comes as Qan­tas and Jet­star work­ers also be­gin two days of protests over plans to out­source jobs.
