Posted by Billy Colless on September 18, 2020

We have all been shocked by the Jetstar decision to outsource the work of Jetstar services staff working on the ramp in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Cairns, Adelaide and Avalon. Around 350 staff will lose their jobs as a result of this decision which came without warning.

Posted by Billy Colless on September 17, 2020

The ASU is calling on Menzies Aviation to offer ‘Special Leave Without Pay’ (SLWP) to all employees affected by stand downs.
