Your TWU are demanding JETSTAR come back to the negotiating table ready to negotiate in good faith after the company endorsed agreement was overwhelmingly rejected by Ground crew across the country.
During negotiations Jetstar management:
- refused to align job classifications along with others comparable in the industry
- offered a minimal towing allowance and training allowance that would not be payable to 96% of their workforce
- attempted to lock in 6-day working weeks without penalty rates for part time workers
Last December, the TWU was forced to apply to the Fair Work Commission for good faith bargaining orders against Jetstar in response to suggestions by Jetstar that it would ground the airline, similar to the 2011 action of its parent company Qantas.
