Qantas is looking at a major restructuring of its maintainence section. The official QF statement is below, with the interesting note that Geoff Dixon pefers the option to send the jobs overseas. In New Zealand's Dominion Post this morning, a figure of over 3000 job losses was quoted.

I read the article as Mr. Dixon prefers the onshore option--not offshoring.

Mr Dixon said Qantas had told its engineering and maintenance workforce that rapidly changing conditions and competition in the industry left it with three options:

* Do nothing and continue business as usual.
* Restructure and relocate extensively within Australia.
* Move significant parts of the business offshore.

"The first option is not realistic, so we will need to decide between the other two", he said.

Mr Dixon said he preferred the onshore option. "However, if we cannot, by working together with staff, make the business globally competitive we will have to pursue the alternative."


"When all is said and done, more will be said than done".

Sorry, you're right there. I was getting this article and the Dominion Post article, that said the off shore option was the preference, confused.

What happened to the NZ engineering thread.
Is the a.net in cahoots with Quantas?
