ASU members across Australia have overwhelmingly endorsed the ASU’s EBA 12 claim after attending meetings to discuss the recommendations from the ASU Qantas National delegates meeting which was held on 5th February 2020. Thanks to all members who took the time to come and participate in meetings.
The ASU claim was served formally on Qantas today.
What’s our claim?
ASU members endorsed a comprehensive claim which recognises the significant contribution we make to the company’s operations, in our EBA12 survey people said they were working harder than ever and want to be recognised for new roles and tasks that have been taken on, our claim addresses this and many other issues.
A full copy of our claim is available on the ASU’s campaign website http://www.asu.asn.au/airlines/qantaseba12
Our first bargaining meeting is scheduled for 16th March 2020.
We are programmed to hear from Tino La Spina, the CEO of Qantas International who will talk about the company’s half year results and we also expect to hear about the issues facing the industry because of the coronavirus.
We have bargained before during challenging times so we don’t expect EBA 12 negotiations to be any different --- the industry will bounce back and that is the future we have to make sure our EBA 12 is ready for.
We will detail what we are told in our next bulletin to members following our first meeting.
The ASU National Negotiating Team will also give an overview of our claim to Qantas management and we will also hear what Qantas’ claims are too.
We want to program regular fortnightly meetings with management and after each meeting we will report back to members on our progress, so watch out for our bulletins.
