    Statement by Tony Sheldon in response to latest Qantas Group Announcement

    February 17

    My thoughts are first and foremost with the workers, families and communities that have been devastated by yesterday’s announcement from the Qantas Group. Some 500 workers will pay the price for the company’s arrogance and bad decision-making. The TWU represents the large majority of the 150 workers at the Adelaide Catering facility which management announced it will axe next March. This workforce will in all likelihood be replaced by an outsourcing company.
