Are we about to see a per longed period of industrial action at Qantas.It would appear based on recent statements by union leaders we could well see a dispute in the sky's similar to the 1998 Australian maritime dispute.Thank god management, pilots,cabin other staff were not asked to take a 20% pay cuts as perhaps he should have done and has been the case at other carriers.What is sad is at the end of today it will still cost Qantas more than any other airline to fly that same aircraft from Sydney to LAX or LHR.Hopefully AJ will not bring in or recruit Thu Jet-connect.Then may be he will be eliminated from Qantas.

Love the way you phrase that. The unions fighting for survival and not workers. LOL
Ah, who would have thought an anacronism of the 20th century would still be haunting us today.

The unions got the numerous employee benifits over the years that most OS airlines do not have, now its come back to bight them, from what I read Qantas FA costs alone are double of most other airlines. Any stop work will bring Q down to its knees and make it far worse than in is now.
