Yesterday the ASU sent a letter to Qantas CEO Alan Joyce calling for the payment of the outstanding bonuses that were promised to ASU covered staff at Qantas Airways and Eastern Australian Airlines in 2018. These bonuses were frozen pending finalisation of our next rounds of bargaining which are due this year but are unlikely to be able to be completed any time soon because of the devastating effect that the Coronavirus crisis is having on the aviation industry and our economy generally.
Daily Qantas demands loyalty from staff and it is given back in spades – now we are calling on Qantas to assist staff during the difficult times ahead by paying the bonuses that are owed. If we are all in this together this seems like the least Qantas can do.
We hope the company heeds our call and assists staff at this difficult time – we will let you know when we have a response.
