Qantas & QF Regionals

In a Change.org petition released today, Australians are giving voice to their frustration with the national carrier which recently announced it was reneging on its promise made in May this year to not offshore more call centre jobs. The petition calls on Joyce and the Board to immediately reverse this…
As in previous years the ASU is sending representatives to the Qantas AGM to ask some hard questions ... We don't expect to be the only ones given the record loss Qantas has sustained. We expect many shareholders will question how CEO Alan Joyce and the Board can hold their…
ASU members would be forgiven for thinking that the telephone sales strategy is being made up as they go along. The conflicting information we have been given since the closure of the Melbourne and Brisbane centres was announced certainly supports this contention and the meeting between your ASU reps and…
