    Qantas grounds two more 767s

    Qantas (QF) announced Tuesday it will ground two more Boeing 767s because of ongoing industrial disputes with engineers. It will also cut 80 transcontinental flights over the next month, slashing the number of seats available by 20,000 (ATW Daily News, Oct. 18).
    However, the Australian Licensed Engineers Assn. (ALAEA) federal secretary Steve Purvinas has accused of QF of "overstating the situation to exacerbate the dispute. These aircraft are up for sale. While we have restrictions on overtime there is not a blanket ban."
    QF conceded that some of the aircraft up for sale are not due to leave the fleet for some months. CEO Alan Joyce insisted that overtime bans and 'go-slows' in heavy maintenance are having an impact. ALAEA will keep the ban on overtime and the go-slow in place until Christmas.

    Engineers' union calls off Qantas strikes,other beginning

    QANTAS has won some respite from the damaging strikes that have disrupted passengers and hurt the airline's ability to fly, with a key union dropping all industrial action for at least three weeks.
    The move by the engineers' union was last night welcomed by the Gillard government and Workplace Relations Minister Chris Evans, but he warned the government would not allow the dispute to ''drag on''.
    But while the engineers were pulling back, the union representing baggage handlers and caterers announced a fresh round of short strikes next Wednesday, with one-hour stoppages at Canberra and Cairns and a three-hour strike at Sydney Airport.

    8,600 Air Canada workers set to strike
    Posted: 08 March 2012 0307 hrs


    MONTREAL: Air Canada said on Wednesday that its largest union plans to strike as early as next week, potentially wreaking havoc for travellers during a usually busy school holiday.

    The looming job action followed the workers' rejection of a tentative agreement signed by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers bargaining committee, following mediation. The union represents about 8,600 Air Canada mechanics, baggage handlers and cargo agents.

    The union said a strike could start at 12:01 am (0401 GMT) Monday, during a peak travel period coinciding with a one-week March break in classes that sees many Canadian students take vacation.
