View Full Version : Jetstar Staff to receive a $2000 bonus

28th Aug 2010, 08:03
I heard a rumour this morning that all Jetstar employees are going to receive a $2000 cash bonus in addition to the $250 Staff Travel bonus.

Any truth in that ?

That's not much. And very egalitarian too. So everyone gets the same bonus? Office girl, F/A, F/O, baggage guy, Capt and CEO?

whilst shafting them on everything else..

Any sort of bonus is usually paid company wide, QF and JQ.

I doubt the board would allow a cash bonus to be paid just to one part of the company.

Maybe the whole QF group will get a $2000 cash payment as well as the staff travel discount??

I will believe it when I see it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As they aren't paying a dividend, I'd very much doubt it. Good rumor though, but perhaps next time you should aim higher.

The shareholders would love to hear that QF Group staff get a $2000 bonus while they get paid zip (again). Tell 'em they're dreamin'.

heard from sly of the underworld that there is a large pineapple coming to the syd based 330 guys. Word is, go on 18 month transfers or be bumped back to NB. Hows that for a bonus......

Definately no bonus for mainline. That was stated in the letter telling us we would get the staff travel cash.

..a little sweetener to throw a bit of cold water on the staff anger...

..a little sweetener to throw a bit of cold water on the staff anger... If they pay out to Jetstar and not the rest of the QANTAS Group then I would say it would be like throwing petrol on a fire.

one could argue -that this $2000 which is being talked about.....has come from the sweat of QF mainline....."doing more with less" AND lets not forget Dixon in 2001....."JQ will never cannibalise mainline routes":{

This will cause an internal war llike nothing else if this goes ahead. We are "supposed ":hmm: to be a GROUP company.

Yeah right !

I heard a rumour this morning

Think that says it all, folks...........

"I heard a rumour this morning "

... is that before or after you smoked a bong?

..petrol on fire at QF but trying to distract the J* guys/gals. A desperate attempt to not have their OTP smashed and a fuel bill to wince about..

Keep trying.

This is a false rumour. The reason for the Staff Travel offer was to reward staff without providing a cash payment as has been done in the past. It would be inappropriate if staff received cash bonuses, yet shareholders (who pay our wages) did not get a dividend payment, for which they will not.

Nope it's true. I just got my cheque in the post this evening. It's post-dated for the 32nd of August though. Damn,

I can also confirm that I have received email details on how to claim payment.

All I had to do was provide my bank account details to a Nigerian banker and he would arrange the transfer of funds on Monday.

You guys are lucky - I got mine after following complex instructions to visit the ekka between 10am and 10:13am on a Tuesday, and claiming it in the form of discount vouchers to be found in every second Triple M showbag sold...

You know what's missing from this thread?
A badly spelt and grammatically suspect post from an 'I'm new here ;)' PPRuNe member with a name like TwinkleToes, telling everyone that Jetstar's roolly gr8 honest and it's not the casuals' fault and u'll all be obselleet soon anyway :}:}

Jetstar PR people, where are you??? You've missed one! No $2K for you...

t-vasis yet shareholders (who pay our wages) did not get a dividend Thats funny, shareholders pay the wages. Sounds like a certain former CEO. In my opinion, the customers not Shareholders pay the wages.
