Take action to save the Flying Kangaroo!


The Flying Kangaroo is an Australian institution but working for Qantas is more struggle street than Aussie dream.

Since senior management introduced their ‘Transformation Program’ Qantas has sacked 5000 employees and replaced them with 9000 part-time outsourced jobs.

Qantas management has pledged that there will be no new hires at Qantas Airways.

Instead all new jobs will be created through Qantas subsidiaries like QGS where workers are:

    • 100% part-time
    • Only guaranteed 20 hours per week
    • Guaranteed an income below the weekly minimum wage

Qantas must have a long-term strategy that serves shareholders, the community and Qantas workers alike – that means senior management must end its war on Qantas workers.
