Ok i heard that at SYD airport ramp agents are all paid the same/similar regardless of the company they work for. My question is: Is that true and if so how did they get that?

Also I heard in SFO they have a livable wage clause at the airport, so how did they get that?

Thats not true - Menzies/TollDn/QF/EGH etc all have different agreements. Even in one company you can have casual/permanent/full time staff.. As well some of the ramp staff are in unionised companies, others are not.

The pay rates probably only differ by a $ or 2 an hour when it all comes out in the wash however, except for QF who make significantly more...

Hope that helps...

thank you i was asking cause there is a drive to get the rates to be similar up here between all the companies, and if it was true i was hoping to see how it came about

Quoting Pictues (Thread starter):

I believe it's a state law in CA that if you don't get benefits in certain occupations, you get paid a livable wage... When I worked part-time sans benefits with ATS at ONT, I was paid $10.64 per hour, which they said was because of that clause. I certainly wasn't complaining, especially at 30-35 hours a week and no rent Big grin

yes but QF announced yesterday they are getting rid of 1750 more staff which probably includes some ramp agents as they are cutting capacity again.
