Delegates’ Conference heard how Qantas:
- Displayed gross indifference to the jobs, wellbeing, health and safety and employment conditions of workers during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
- Illegally outsourced ground staff workers under the guise of ‘COVID-19 scale backs’ and then asked untrained and unskilled senior executives to fill shortages in these roles.
- Qantas is facing the first of its kind criminal prosecution from the Work Health and Safety Regulator for discriminatory conduct against a TWU trained Health and Safety Representative who sought to protect workers from the risks of COVID-19.
Qantas has crushed the “Spirt of Australia”.
