How the F#KC can Jetstar still operate?

Despite what they may say, Jetstar cannot operate in isolation. Hasn't thought this out very well has he?

Got my popcorn out!

Doesn't sound very rational to me. The day before The Cup?

Who are jetstar going to use next week to carry their cancellations??

This guy is insane and evil
Like an African nutbag despot.

"We may have no choice but to take down Qantas part by part" - straight from his b/s on ABC24.

"we are in lockdown until unions come to an agreement with US!"

Steve, I hope you follow through on your statement of that jail cell at Long Bay jail!

QF Employee's whether they say so or not..

Union leaders said they wanted to 'slow bake' QANTAS. Well it looks like Joyce just threw them into the furnace with an old school lock-out. Unions aren't the only ones who can play that game.

People talking on sky news and bagging the persons on strike, Saying how unions cant dictate management business plans.

WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO KEEPING THINGS AUSTRALIAN.

This is a joke, This is going to screw the WHOLE of Australia.

My poor friend needs to now rebook all her staff on new flight come Monday. This is now not just about staff.

I find it a joke they all got pay rises at the AGM Yesterday.

Good on you Joycey. You can't legally lock out the Long Haul Pilots. As far as I'm aware, any action by an employer (like a lockout) is only legal if it is considered equal to the action done by the employee. (stand to be corrected on this, only going off what I've heard through AIPA briefings).

The TWU and ALAEA guys have been participating in stop work meetings so a lockout is probably legal in retaliation to these parties. Only problem is that you lockout the AIPA guys by default.

Pass-a-frog,

Mate...where have you been? We've missed you. You must have a hard on with the lockout.

Yesterday on the October 28th thread I posted this :

There are only two options open to the QANTAS board.........

1 : The unions back down and management win ( This is the most likely scenario)
2 : They close the airline down

there is no 3rd option
It appears I was wrong, QF chose option 2

Call the bastards bluff and see how long this prick Joyce really intends to keep this up. Back down now and you will have had your balls cut off.

Speedlever,

They can't legally do that. The company would rightly take them to the cleaners. They are not in dispute with QF.

It's a true fact, that no matter where you are in the world, if you stop and listen very carefully you can hear the barely muffled shuffle of John Borghetti doing the happy dance.

Doin the happy dance...doin the happy dance.

From Fair Work Australia:

Employers may lock out their employees (that is, refusing to allow them to work or to pay them).
So is QANTAS ceasing the salaries of those locked-out?

UPDATE: Just saw Joyce say that employees locked out will not be permitted at work and will NOT be payed
