Media: 1000 Qantas jobs under threat

From Sydney Morning Herald: said:
NERVOUSNESS among the 1000 Qantas maintenance staff in Melbourne is growing, with one union fearing the national carrier has already decided to close its Boeing 737 heavy repair base in Tullamarine.

Even though Qantas has not yet announced the results of the six-month review of its narrow-body aircraft engineering operations, the Australian Licensed Aircraft Engineers Association fears the airline may have made up its mind to shut the Tullamarine base weeks ago.
So are we in for more industrial action? It would be interesting to know the truth rather than being fed the spin from the Unions and from Qantas.

"We expect to finalise the review in September," he said.

Hmmm - have QF travel booked for September and early October. I wonder if I should quietly prepare strike contingency plans.
