That’s what 97.65% of Qantas Ground Services workers asked for in a recent TWU survey

The change in employment conditions that our Qantas Ground services members want the most is the opportunity to move to a full time job.

This is what 97.65% of respondents surveyed by your TWU gave as their number one priority.

For those who don’t know, QGS is the workforce that Qantas put in place to enable it to cut the wages and conditions of its workforce.

There are approximately 1300 QGS employees around australia and none HAVE FULL-TIME JOBS!!!

Permanency doesn’t exist at QGS – you are casual, part-time and that’s the way Qantas CEO Alan Joyce and his fellow Qantas shineebums like it.

Negotiations are about to get underway at Qantas and the company has already told employees that there will be no pay rises.

Qantas workers are still in the cold grip of an 18 month wage freeze and they want things kept that way.

This is regardless of the airline announcing a $921 million profit on february 24.

And despite Alan Joyce, the $12 million dollars a year man, keeping his own greedy snout in the pig’s trough!

However, your TWU will go into battle on behalf of a hard working group of people who sweat their guts out for Qantas.

Negotiations will start soon and a recently drawn up log of claims based on responses to our survey, will be put to the company.

It includes a comprehensive list of demands
