The permanent divisional transfer list was updated because two individuals made it onto the list and they were not eligible:

1. One girl was from BNE base. She submitted the form before serving her minimum 2 years at SH. She has now been struck off the list.

2. Another girl from SYD base submitted 2 forms at once. She filled one form in for permanent transfer and another form in for fixed term. She was obviously not eligible to transfer under permanent but somehow made it onto the permanent list. Allocations fd up big time. She too has been struck off the list.

The new list does not show any names because Allocations now no longer want people to scrutinise who gets to go over. So if they fk up the names again in the future, no one would ever find out. That is why from now on, you will not see any names being published.

Yes....the seniority list is being sorted out to prepare for CR, should the company decide to go down this path.

Hi Domestos,

Thanks for the update.

Haven't been back to the office for a while, any news on when the fixed term list will be published?

Hey darls, thank you for missing me

There have been so many people from Operations and CC management sacked that publishing the FT names is no longer a priority. As you know, the CC managers have been sacked and asked to reapply for a new position. Once they have finalised numbers for CC managers, then they will finalise the numbers to go across to LH.

All of the Dingoes up in CNS, who have applied, are the ones guaranteed of getting a spot on the FT list. One of the KPIs of the base manager up there is to reduce the base numbers without looking like they are shutting it down. Dingoes were 'invited' to apply by the manager of that base, i.e they were phoned.

Don't believe PL when he said that the names of FT will by published this week. They won't. There is more chance that they will be out mid next week...NOT this week.

Regards
Domestos

3 JUNE 2009 QF19-09
ATTENTION: All Short -Haul Flight Attendants

TRANSFERS

LONG HAUL - PERMANENT
On 28 May 2009 the Company published the list of 40 flight attendants transferring permanently to the Long Haul Division under your Enterprise Agreement.

Members should note that these transfers meet the requirements of the Enterprise Agreement for transfers up to but not beyond the end of the financial year being 30 June 2009.

Therefore, it will be open for the Association to press for more permanent transfers for the next financial year. It will be our intention to pursue this issue once the fixed term A380 transfers have been processed.
Members should also note that should you be successful in transferring on a fixed term basis and permanent transfers are available you will be offered a permanent transfer, assuming you are on the list and your position on the list is reached as part of the normal process.

LONG HAUL – FIXED TERM
At a recent meeting the Company indicated that they are yet to resolve the final numbers for fixed term transfers to Long Haul to primarily cover the A380 operations. The Association can advise there will be approximately 150 positions available and this initiative will be implemented (conversion schools) over a six month period commencing from July 2009.

The number of flight attendants by category or base to be offered this opportunity is, as outlined above, being finalised by the Company. These positions were advertised on the basis that selection would be at
the discretion of the Company, as is the case with transfers to London. However your Association suggested that once final numbers have been determined there should be equal opportunity and positions should be offered on a random basis.


SHORT HAUL - BASE

On Tuesday 5 June a meeting was held with Qantas to discuss base transfers. The meeting concluded with agreement to make a number of initial offers for permanent transfers between bases. The Company will be offering a total of 23 transfers including a limited number of CSM’s under the normal transfer process.

The Association will be having a further meeting with the Company, seeking additional transfers once the fixed term to Long Haul has been finalised, which may include an opportunity for Short Haul crew to base transfer for a fixed term basis up to two years.


Interesting points

* Only 150 positions available.
* Positions should be offered on a random basis.
(Those of uswho have been on the transfer list for years before CNS QF Crew base even started, not fair.=

Not Fair?

Not keeping your job is not fair.
Keeping your job is.
All this re arranging is about keeping jobs.The rest is background noise.

Qantas IT Second String

Sorry that didnt work.
As a mate says ...if you are not good enough to get a job in mainstream IT you can always get a job with Qantas.
Thats why Factor 2 is not working and EQ is a shambles

Fair ? Unfair?

Congratulations to all crews who got fixed-term transfer. Just wanna point out something

I believe all cns crews(40 of them) who applied a380, they all got it. Nothing to do with their performance such as sick leave, assessment.... Even one crew has been stood down before,he/she got it. It seems like they wanna reduce cns base. so it means As long as you apply for a380 in cns, thry give it to them regardless what happened to your personal file.
FAIR GO?
Today is the last day for CNS cabin crew team manager.Now, in cns , they only have BOS desk and one admin staff for whole base. Maybe they will shut down the base soon.
None of ex-ao crews who transferred to other bases got A380- Well done QF. Antoher example of (equal opportunity, fair go)

Cmon guys
This is a great opportunity for some crew in Qantas in a time where other airlines are retrenching cabin crew. Everyone was asked to apply for the fixed term if they desired- it wasn't compulsary. It was always stated on both the Company's Q and A's and the FAAA letters that positions would be chosen based on "operational requirements". There are no surprises. Why pay staff to sit at home in Cairns....of course they have given them a slot. It is also why only two or three Perth Based crew got it, as they are under staffed over there. If you were running a company wouldn't you do the same? Personally these measures that QF are taking to keep us all employed are fine by me....having seen other airlines that left it all a bit too late. Congratulations to all who got it. Go over and enjoy the two years....and do Short Haul proud. Good on you.
