When do the dogs and balaclavas come out? No wonder Reith stuck his nose in the other day.

What a sad day.

Now the government will have to get involved. The unions will go back to work at some stage and will destroy Joyce from the inside. You can bet he will get a 3 year contract renewal and another big bonus. What a tool!!!

Whos decision was this? Joyce alone, or did he take advice from elsewhere?
Government will now step in - whose side will they be on?

This is going to cost the country billions of dollars - first casualty the Mebourne cup carnival........

Long term damage to the brand will surely cost hundreds of millions - is it worth it?

Qantas will lockout some employees from 8 pm (AEDT) 31 Oct. Until then, all staff are required at work as per normal. As a precaution, the fleet is grounded. More info available on Staff Travel Online and the intranet soon

F%@k this, I'm going fishing......

Well this will certainly bring it to a head. What about the customers stranded overseas? What about staff straneded overseas?

I think Qantas has lost the plot. They have not been competitive for some time and this may mean the death. The union issue has not helped.
