i totally agree that there is a role for Qantas Domestic, But it is evolving. It will not be what it currently is.

Have you heard on the grape vine how many positions will be available to domestic crew for the 2 year fixed term contract?

My question was in regard to fixed term 2 year contract so I assume its 140 plus and additional 40 for the permanent divisional transfers meaning 180 in total I stand to be corrected though. 140 doesnt seem like many positions though and a lot of competition.

Yes GalleyHag is correct...the figure is for 140 Fixed and 40 Permanent.

Whether we like it or not, CNS crew will have first preference. Yes we all know, this is tremendously unfair as they have only been a part of SH for under 2 years....but hey, that's the way the cookie crumbles and we just have to accept it I suppose.

Rosters just out....people at the 10 year seniority level in SYD have now been forced onto Reserve. In yesterday's open time, there were only 16 duties available. I heard that a crew member of 20 years seniority dialled in yesterday and couldn't even pick up something. The company will definitely have to send more to LH if they want to resolve the forced reserve line problem now that some domestic flying has been transferred to LH.

I really do hope my rumour of 140 FT is grossly wrong. My heart goes out to all my mates who are MAM....they have not been getting any work and they don't get paid unless they work.....even though QAL are forced onto RL, at least they get paid basic salary.

All the best to our MAM colleagues and I really hope that whatever numbers they send to LH, that it alleviates the problems faced by QAL SH and MAM.

Domestos

Those with 10 years seniority in SYD can now enjoy a rest... not that bad.

CNS based crew have done ONE duty this month.

Reserve is not a 'rest'. After 10 years flying you should expect to get a roster and know what you are doing for the month. Being on reserve makes it very difficult to plan your life.

Oh it does, however then my issue is with MAM being issued with duties over QAL crew. I like MAM crew, and have many friends who are (as im sure we all do) However, when im on Home Reserve and MAM are getting duties..

Oh really? I think you are forgetting that no-one can expect anything these days unless it is written into your EBA, and even that is not certain.
I think those that have to do reserve for a month should be grateful they have a job.

Dixon Rhetoric

C'mon Twiggsy Dixon has left the building.
Time to give up the Dixonesque rhetoric

True, they still have a job... Not like they are being made to transfer to JQ. Are the people complaining also those who didn't want to use their Long service leave, which would have MADE redundancies happen if leave was not taken?

I guess taking leave over school holidays is more important than 500 jobs..

Does this sound like crew talking or one of the visitors?

No wonder the people in the office are so well liked.

Reserve ain't that bad..
I'm 3 weeks home reserve now and it has been bliss! Who doesn't like getting paid to do nudda? Give all the work to MAM then we all get paid! Bring on RES.. If these transfers are going to come through the holiday is over!

Any idea if crew are transferring to SH?

Sistema, the only problem with being at home and not working is you need to learn to cook, and talk to the husband.... two things that not all flight attendants enjoy doing

i believe about 40 crew will come of the current transfer list based on the date on the list. Other than that i think that there are only about 30-40 positions at this stage for fixed term transfer. Perhaps some more later in the year
