View Full Version : AIPA to overhaul Jetstar

4th Feb 2010, 08:08
On the 15th february all DECs in Darwin will be made permanent because on seniority that is all they can ever be unless they return to the right seat.
this will deter others from overseas coming to JQ allowing the QF pilots on seniority to name their job in Jetstar above all including most Captains as well.:mad:

No need for any fight. The Jetstar people on this thread who are trying to insinuate that any QF pilot can now come into JQ over the top of any JQ pilot simply don't know what they are talking about.

But why spoil a perfectly good ****fight with a few salient facts?:yuk::yuk:

As I posted in reply to Rabbitweed earlier.

The MOU that involves the transfer between QF and JQ of flight crews was agreed to at the establishment of Jetstar.

The Qantas Group chose not to honor the agreement.

With the reduction in mainline flying, Qantas crews were threatened with redundancy whilst at the same time the Qantas group were hiring pilots in Jetstar.

The subsequent FWA ruling goes some way to ease the barriers so that some junior Qantas crew have the option should they wish, to join Jetstar on Jetstar conditions and pay.

Should a Jetstar pilot wish to transfer to Qantas he or she will join Qantas at the Qantas rate of pay.

That said I would be VERY surprised if the numbers involved were massive however it gives options in either direction.

What we should be working toward is a combined pilot group that is united in gaining better pay and conditions for ALL in the group with the freedom to work in either area.

Do shareholders/boardmembers allow Jetstar executives the opportunity to work for Qantas Rabbitweed? The current Qantas CEO Alan Joyce used to work for Jetstar. Should this not have been allowed? Perhaps we should have one rule for senior management and one for its group pilots.

Both Jetstar and Qantas are essential to the Group. I do not wish to turn this into a Jetstar vs Qantas argument. Do you Rabbitweed?

I'm finding it hard to fault more options for both groups of pilots whilst at the same time providing an opportunity to unite both pilot groups.

Do you oppose unity and solidarity between pilot groups Rabbitweed?

This quote sums it up rather well;

"My friends, it is solidarity of labor we want. We do not want to find fault with each other, but to solidify our forces and say to each other: "We must be together; our masters are joined together and we must do the same thing."

Wise words!
