Update for ASU members at Emirates

02 July 2020 By ASU, the airlines industry union

The ASU and ALAEA have met with Emirates to discuss the global announcements about changes to Emirates’ business model.

In our initial discussion with the Company, HR representatives confirmed that you will be contacted by your manager or Supervisor by early next week. The Company should be able to tell you more about their restructure proposals at those meetings.

They also confirmed that EAP continues to be available to you via your HR Communication folder on Emirates’ internal communication network.

The unions have scheduled another meeting on 8 July 2020 when we expect to have a better understanding about what the global announcements mean for you.

Protecting airlines industry jobs in the COVID-19 recovery

Hundreds of ASU members who work in aviation around Australia recently met online and unanimously voted to campaign for AviationKeeper – an industry wide Government funding package to support the Australian aviation industry get through the COVID-19 recovery. Can you sign the petition calling on the Government to bring in AviationKeeper now?

ASU members want the Government to bring in an extension of the current JobKeeper package so that it covers everyone in aviation who needs it and goes for as long as we need it to.

Currently thousands of ASU members are stood down from work but not receiving JobKeeper because of unfair legal loopholes. And JobKeeper is currently due to end in just 100 days – even though it is clear that it will take airlines longer to bounce back than other parts of the economy, and it is unlikely that people will resume interstate and international travel at the pre-COVID-19 rates for some time.

The Government is planning its next steps for the economic recovery right now, and we need to take urgent action to ensure that they back Australian aviation workers. Please take a moment to sign the petition calling on the Governmment to bring in AviationKeeper now!

COVID-19 may make us be physically distant, but that won’t stop us standing up together to demand our Government support Australian aviation workers. Click here to sign the petition to protect Australian aviation jobs in the COVID-19 recover.
