Last year AeroCare/Swissport asked the Federal Court of Australia to decide whether the way it uses split shifts is legal. The ASU was at the hearing and argued that it was not legal to use split shifts the way they want to.

The judge heard the case and on Friday, 25 January 2019, he handed down his decision. The judge said that the Airline Operations – Ground Handling Award does not allow split shifts as proposed by AeroCare/Swissport.
