While the airline continues to battle its engineers, baggage handler and pilots unions over wages and work conditions, Qantas has reached an in-principle enterprise bargaining agreement (EBA) with its short haul cabin crew union.

The agreement reached with the Flight Attendants Association of Australia Domestic/Regional Division (FAAA) will be put to a vote to around 2150 customer service managers and flight attendants between October 28 and November 18.

“Our cabin crew play a very important role in providing safety and customer service to our passengers during every single flight,” Qantas Group Executive Operations Lyell Strambi said in a statement. “We are pleased that we have been able to negotiate a new agreement for our cabin crew which will provide improved pay and conditions and also provide the airline with greater flexibility.”

As part of the EBA, cabin crew members will receive a three per cent pay increase each year for the next three years, a $500 lump sum payment each year for three years, and improved flexibility for rostering, while customer service managers will receive an additional increment in their classifications.
