Since our last bulletin we have had 3 more meetings with the company – bringing our total number of meetings to 11. Our last meeting was on 21st July 2016 in Sydney.
We have had some productive discussions about the issue of part time capping, jobshare, and flexible work agreements – we believe we have defined the problems, but not yet finalised solutions.
It would be fair to say our discussions have been useful and all sides have a better understanding of the issues for part time employees at the front line. We still need to talk more.
On our other claims there has been some progress but, as is always the case with Qantas, nothing is locked in.
Your national negotiating team believe it is now time for members’ meetings across the country so that all members can take stock of exactly where we are at with our claims and what we have said to Qantas about their claims.
Shortly you will receive notification about meetings in your local area. These are important briefings and you are urged to attend so you can give our team your feedback and input about what to do next.
