The Transport Workers Union has appealed to an Australian tribunal to overturn the suspension of a Qantas worker who they claim rightly raised coronavirus safety concerns.

The Transport Workers Union has accused Jetstar of “disgraceful blackmail tactics” after the airline reached a deal with striking groundstaff and baggage handlers.
Jetstar workers will lose nearly $200,000 in lifetime pay because of an 18-month wage freeze instigated in 2014, an investigation commissioned by the Transport Workers Union claims.
Jetstar has cancelled a quarter of its domestic flights departing on Wednesday ahead of a planned walkout of 250 Transport Workers Union members.
Jetstar has claimed its operations were “largely unaffected” by Wednesday’s strike that saw 250 Transport Workers Union members walkout and 48 domestic flights cancelled.
