Tonight airlines members came together online to fight for AviationKeeper and to extend JobKeeper for all aviation workers.
We came together as union members to launch our campaign Keep Australia Flying because no worker should be left behind by this crisis.
Your union is campaigning for ongoing income support and wage subsidies for the aviation sector to make sure aviation workers and our industry are supported through the COVID-19 recovery.
Take action with us now!
Even if we are physically apart or not at work we can still make an impact. Take action now.
We have launched our Keep Australia Flying campaign to ensure every worker in the aviation industry can rely on a wage subsidy for as long as needed in the COVID-19 recovery.
Today we also launched the Keep Australia Flying report.
What is it?
We surveyed more than 500 workers in aviation about what impacts COVID had on them and what they needed to come through this crisis.
What we heard was aviation workers have been doing it tough. Aviation workers are highly skilled and know what it will take to rebuild the industry.
Together we are calling on the Federal government to act urgently to Keep Australia Flying and support airlines workers:
- We need the Federal Government to extend JobKeeper for aviation workers past March, and to make sure everyone in our society is taken care of
- We need a solution to support all aviation workers beyond March
- We need a wage subsidy for our aviation industry beyond March so that when Australia is ready to fly again, experienced and skilled airlines workers are too.

We can navigate out of this crisis but only if we take action together.
By your side,
