The union representing Virgin Australia pilots has urged continued negotiations after its members rejected the airline’s contract offer.
Nearly two-thirds of pilots voted against the new Enterprise Bargaining Agreement put forward by the carrier, the Virgin International Pilots’ Association says.
“The Virgin Australia pilot group has spoken loud and clear,” union executive director Simon O’Hara told Sky News. “This vote sends a very clear message to all parties involved that the pilot group wants the negotiations for a replacement pilots’ EBA to resume and for Virgin Australia to table a better offer.”
