Qantas suspends operations after locking out striking employees

Australian flag carrier Qantas Airways has grounded all aircraft and suspended its domestic and international operations indefinitely, dramatically upping the stakes in its ongoing battle with three workers' unions.

 

The airline reached this decision after deciding to lock out all employees covered by the agreements being negotiated with the Australian Licenced Engineers Union (ALAEA), the Transport Workers Union (TWU) and the Australian and International Pilots Union (AIPA) from 18:00h Sydney time on Monday.

 

This comes after several weeks of occasional industrial action by members of the three unions, which has resulted in flight cancellations and disruptions that have cost Qantas Australian dollar (A$) 68 million so far. The airline added that it is losing A$15 million in revenue due to the industrial action.

 

The Oneworld carrier said that even though the lockdown would come into effect on Monday, the "tense environment" that means that "individual reactions to this lock-out decision may be unpredictable", and that led to the decision to ground all aircraft worldwide.

 

This would affect only the Qantas international and domestic fleet, it said. Aircraft currently in the air would complete their flights and remain grounded until the impasse is over.

 

Operations by Qantas' low-cost subsidiary Jetstar will not be affected, and the other members of the Group like QantasLink, JetConnect, Express Freighters Australia and Atlas Freighters will continue flying.

 

"This is a crisis for Qantas," said its CEO Alan Joyce in a statement. "If this action continues as the unions have promised, we will have no choice but to close down Qantas part by part."

Anúncio Oficial

Qantas responds to industrial action

Sydney, 29 October 2011

Qantas today announced that, from 8pm AEDT on Monday 31 October 2011, it will lock out all employees who will be covered by the industrial agreements currently being negotiated with the Australian Licenced Engineers Union (ALAEA), the Transport Workers Union (TWU) and the Australian and International Pilots Union (AIPA).

This step is being taken under the provisions of the Fair Work Act in response to industrial action taken by these unions. The financial impact of action taken to date has reached $68 million and the action is costing Qantas approximately $15 million per week in lost revenue. Approximately 70,000 passengers have been affected and more than 600 flights cancelled.

Pilots, licenced engineers and baggage, ground and catering staff are essential to Qantas operations and the lock-out will therefore make it necessary for all Qantas aircraft to be grounded. For precautionary reasons, this will take place immediately (as at 5pm AEDT, Saturday 29 October 2011).

Aircraft currently in the air will complete the sectors they are operating. However, there will be no further Qantas domestic departures or international departures anywhere in the world. This will have an estimated financial impact on Qantas of $20 million per day.

The lock-out will continue until the ALAEA, the TWU and AIPA drop the extreme demands that have made it impossible for agreements to be reached.

Jetstar flights, QantasLink flights and Qantas flights across the Tasman operated by Jetconnect will continue. Express Freighters Australia and Atlas Freighters will also continue to operate.

Requirements for employees are as follows:

- Until the lock-out commences, all employees are required at work as normal and will be paid.

- Once the lock-out commences:

- employees who are locked out will not be required at work and will not be paid.

- employees working overseas will not be locked out and will continue to be paid.

- all other employees are required at work and will be paid as normal.

Customers booked on Qantas flights should not go to the airport until further notice. A full refund will be available to any customer who chooses to cancel their flight because it has been directly affected by the grounding of the fleet. Full rebooking flexibility will be available to customers who wish to defer their travel.

Assistance with accommodation and alternative flights, as well as other support, will be offered to customers who are mid-journey.

Customers should monitor qantas.com for the latest updates. The latest information will also be posted on Qantas’ Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Only customers travelling within the next 24 hours should call Qantas contact centres (on 13 13 13).

Qantas regrets that this action has become necessary and apologises sincerely to all affected passengers.

Quebrar, não quebra. A Qantas tem o aval e apoio do governo, e, do jeito que estão mostrando as coisas, o(s) sindicato(s) envolvido(s) vão ser mal vistos pela opinião pública. Isso me cheiravmanobra política pra pressionar os sindicatos.

Tenho uma leve impressão que a Qantas vai quebrar

Quem vai quebrar são as famílias dos empregados que serão demitidos pela Quantas e aqueles que ficarão sem receber durante esse período. A Quantas irá superar isso.

Foi exatamente a mesma coisa que pensei, pressão Australia sem Qantas?

Quase impossível.

Greve deveria ser proibido no mundo todo, quem nao esta satisfeito na empresa vaza ja que a empresa nao obriga ninguem a trabalhar sem receber.

 

Voce acredita mesmo naquilo que escreveu? Por vontade das empresas, aéreas ou não, os empregados trabalhariam de graça! Ainda bem que existem sindicatos, tem que haver um equilibrio entre empregados e empregadores.

 

Note que não estou defendendo o que se passa com os sindicatos da Qantas, até porque nem sei quais as razões que levaram a esta situação. Só posso dizer que, felizmente, o lock out é proíbido em quase todos os países europeus.

 

Abraço

Não serei tão rigido quanto ao colega, mas tudo há um limite. Imagina o aluno que vai ter aula até fevereiro porquê seus professores passaram pouco mais de 50 dias de greve e no final não conseguiram nada? No senhor que vai a loteria com o mesmo papel que pagaria no banco, passa duas horas na fila para ser atendido e descobrir que na loterica não paga aquele tipo de boleto? Ter que andar quase sete quilometros porquê os rodoviarios fecharam a principal estação de onibus da cidade? Aquele resultado de exame que vem de longe atrasar mais de um mês porquê os correios pararam? Naquele filho que passou a noite sem o pai porquê pararam a fabrica onde ele trabalha, assim não deixaram o pessoal que estava la sair. Dentre muitos outros exemplos. É um esforço nescessario para o trabalhador conseguir, mas há um certo momento que chega no limete e não tem quem aguente, logo é nescessario uma intervenção judicial.

Eu quero ver quem vai ceder primeiro: os funcionários/sindicatos ou a Qantas quando seus acionistas pressionarem.

 

Quem agradece: Virgin Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, ANZ, China Eastern/Southern/Air China, Cathay Pacific e JAL, além da BA e LA, por que não?
