G/h the 'work' for casuals is fixing the breach in our eba, 9 months later. I see your point, but really something is clearly wrong with them representing both perm & casuals, is there not?

Why aren't the permanents lobbying harder to stop the casuals coming on line? FAAA probably won't.

Why did MAM pay the casuals $500 000 to get EBA through?

500 casuals in 2006 - $1000 each for the 'yes' vote.

Why was it worth half a mil?

Sorry you feel that way Blue Spot, if you have a problem with understanding people at work you should report it or contact CASA. Perhaps you are choosing not to understand the points made, like; MAM & FAAA screwing both permaments and casuals; VR being offered whilst contract C's are still being hired; casual recruitment drive starting in July; casuals being made fulltime in next two weeks; MAM & FAAA paying for casuals to vote yes on EBA.

Now who voted for FWA and casuals?

Who is lobbying to stop more casuals coming out online?

casualvermin,

By career progression, I assume you mean conversion to full time?

Is this occurring now, or is just being talked about?

Question Role model

.....any truth to the rumour that a SYD S/H -CSM has been punted after being caught by Security with "more than a few"... bottles of Chardy tucked away in his incabin bag??

Talk about greedy.

Is he running a bottle shop on his days off?

What a gem of a post.

How incredibly racist we are becoming. I love that nowadays we have such a diverse workforce at SH. And finally having language speakers means we offer a half decent service to a large proportion of our customers that do not speak English. Perhaps I am one of a dying breed that is remotely concerned with our customer's interests and not just their own.

The attitude developing at SH is disgusting. Lazy racists who are all of 20 telling everyone what to do and not interested in providing even a bare minimum service. It makes me sick.

These people are the ones that tell everyone they deserve permenant employment whist not lifting a finger until told to do so. Which they then do with attitude and treat customers with contempt for making additional requests. They do not consider the next crew and leave galleys and bars in a mess. It's all about drinking in the slip port and duty free... They have a disregard for SOP and the reason behind any rules and do as they please, leaving others to pick up the pieces.

I have found language speakers to be eager to work hard and make customers happy. They certainly cop an absolute flogging on language routes whilst these other people have the hide to make such racist remarks. The treatment I have witnessed from younger crew toward language speakers (some in the late 30s and 40s) is appalling. Please show some respect and maturity.

Some people need to take a look at themselves and assess the true value of their contribution to the team.
