An enterprise agreement between Swissport and its workers has been ripped up, after the TWU and ASU won an appeal against an earlier Fair Work Commission ruling.
Unions have refused to criticise ‘winning’ Virgin bidder Bain for its plan to axe 3,000 roles and scrap the Tigerair brand.
The message, also signed by six unions, asks the payment to apply to all workers in the industry and run until domestic and international borders open.
The TWU’s National Secretary said, “The Qantas CEO is good at walking the halls of Canberra when it suits his agenda yet quick to hang workers out to dry.”
The TWU and Virgin’s administrator have both rebuffed an apparent intervention by bondholders as Queensland is reported to have struck deals with both final bidders.
The TWU’s statement is a significant sign Bain will also seal the support of employee creditors ahead of August’s crunch final vote.
