Qantas announced another bumper profit on Friday 25 August 2017 and as a result decided to provide a bonus of $2500 for full time employee s and $2000 for part time employees who agreed to the airlines 18 months wage freeze.
Qantas Airways ASU members covered by EBA 11 agreed to a wage freeze so are eligible for this bonus.
The good news too is that the wage freeze for EBA 11 is nearly over and 2 pay rises will be payable under EBA 11 in 2018.
Base rate pay is set to increase in 2018 as follows:
- 1.5% pay increase with effect from the first full pay period on or after 1 January 2018
- 3% pay increase with effect from the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2018.
The hard work and sacrifice of front line staff is getting some recognition and the decision of members to take the pay freeze has netted a number of bonuses over recent years which is good news. Some members considering putting extra money into superannuation talk to your local delegate or organisers about how to do this.
