However JQ wants to structure its business, I think it's fair that most people would assume that a wholly domestic flight, with a separate flight number, operating between two domestic terminals, would for all intents and purposes be a domestic flight. And that domestic flight should be staffed by Australian crew on the Australian award. Claiming that this is somehow an international tag flight and therefore eligible to be staffed with international crews at a fraction of the cost (and taking away a job from an Australian) seems a bit of a stretch.What exemption do you mean? A company has to make money or perish.
And what rules do you refer to? For international companies? Why are almost all call centers now based overseas? Even for companies that only do business in Australia?
I note the issue of overseas call centres - I don't particularly like the idea - but those I guess are the same as if QF wanted to staff it's SIN-LHR flights with UK or Singapore crew. Different issue than a domestic flight within Australia.
