Have your say about the future of Aussie Aviation

While aviation industry employers demand Government assistance to run their businesses, the wage level and working conditions of those who keep the industry flying are being ignored.

By working together, Australian aviation workers can ensure that the Australian avation industry remains strong, safe and secure.


  • Qatar Rights Record Not Acceptable

    March 08


    AFR, 7 March 2016
     
    Qatar Airways has a track record of abuse of its employees ("An audience with Qatar Airways' Al Baker", March 4). It keeps staff under constant surveillance and sacks them for minor offences, such as using too much hair gel, wearing their hat wrongly or having a tattoo. The airline is entirely owned by the Qatari government which criminalises homosexuals. When confronted over these issues while in Australia, chief executive Akbar Al Baker insisted that Qatar is a "very modern" country where there are "lady drivers".  It is not acceptable that Australia turns a blind eye to rights violations. Because clearly, as Qatar Airways flights just began into Sydney this week, these violations are now happening here.
