Jetstar ground services: Protected industrial action (

December 6, 2019

TWU members voted with a huge 94% to take protected industrial action.

While Jetstar makes $3.9 billion in revenue, workers are forced onto part-time, insecure work leaving some struggling on as low as $429 a week. After several meetings, Jetstar has refused almost all of the basic claims put forward by workers, such as guaranteed hours, better pay, and minimum 12 hour breaks between shifts. Jetstar has also not put forward any of their own company claims. With negotiations at a stalemate, workers have no choice but to take action.

At the same time, Jetstar workers have raised safety concerns that put workers and the public at risk, such as understaffing, faulty equipment and a lack of experienced, trained staff on each shift.
