THE QUANTAS LEADERSHIP AND UNION LEADERSHIP SHOULD BE SACKED
The Coalition is remaining very quiet over this dispute, except for there inference that things are worse under the Fair Work Act.
As can be seen from the figures below the Coalition has it wrong again!
In the two years since the Fair Work Act took effect, an average of 3.6 working days have been lost per 1000 employees per quarter, compared with an average of 13.5 days per quarter over the Howard decade.
Even the rise in disputes in the June quarter is lower than the rise three years ago when these same agreements were last up for renegotiation.
Wages growth is not high, and the Reserve Bank says ''upward pressure on wages is tending to ease''.
UP, UP AND FAR AWAY--IS THIS THE FUTURE
