Unions take Qantas to High Court over alleged misuse of JobKeeper scheme, underpayment of staff (abc.net.au)

January 14, 2021

Unions are taking their fight against Qantas and its use of the JobKeeper wage subsidy program to the High Court.

They say workers have been ripped off by the airline after working public holidays, weekends and overtime during the COVID-19 lockdowns.

The Transport Workers’ Union (TWU) is accusing Qantas of not paying workers their rightful wages for those shifts, saying the airline has been manipulating rosters and paying workers no more than the basic JobKeeper wage.

Other unions involved in the case include the Australian Services Union (ASU), the Flight Attendants Association of Australia (FAAA), and the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU).
