AIRLINES – DID YOU SEE US IN THE SENATE TODAY?
Did you see us today?
Myself and other ASU members who work in airlines spoke to the Senate Inquiry into the Future of Aviation.
I was nervous to be representing Airlines workers but our experiences of the impact of COVID-19 need to be heard by those in Canberra.
Lots of industries are getting back to work and coming through COVID, but for us in aviation COVID-19 has had a devastating impact.
It’s clear that it will take airlines longer to bounce back than other parts of the economy.
Our industry is highly skilled and we are experienced at our jobs. But without income support and a wage subsidy for our industry the aviation sector will not be able to Keep Australia Flying when the country is ready to fly again.
Come along to our airlines meeting tonight for an important update in our Keep Australia Flying campaign.
