Another Strike Hits Qantas

Mon Aug 19, 2002 7:54 pm

6 000 Qantas staff have undertaken a second 24 hour strike, demanding better pay and conditions.

Hundreds of domestic flights were rescheduled and come checkin, sales and maintenance staff also took part in the strike.

"We think we've made our point to Qantas, whether or not they get it will be the next thing I guess," said Linda White, assistant national secretary of the Australian Services Union. "We'll make an approach to see if they'll meet with us again, see if we can have further talks and get them to move. If we can't, we can't rule out further industrial action," said White.
