Dear TWU member, You may be aware that the federal government announced changes in the 2012-13 Budget to address loopholes in the tax system that were allowing overseas executives and corporate high-flyers to claim hundreds of millions of dollars in tax benefits that were inaccessible by ordinary workers.
Qantas’ announcement to slash routes across the Northern Territory will do untold damage to tourism and economic development in regional Australia and reinforces senior management’s indifference to the future of Australian aviation. That’s according to Tony Sheldon, National Secretary of the Transport Workers’ Union.
We have seen a pattern of behaviour by the board of Qantas in recent times and today we have seen their road map for the breakup of an Australian icon and the circumventing of the Qantas Sale Act. That’s according to Tony Sheldon, National Secretary of the Transport Workers Union (TWU).
