March Update

Last week The Greens were successful in establishing a Senate inquiry looking into ways the federal government can assist Qantas to protect the jobs of around 30,000 employees and ensure we maintain a highly skilled workforce in Australia. Despite initially opposing the inquiry, and voting with the Coalition to block it, the Labor Party eventually supported our call.

Once the inquiry was established I successfully called on Qantas CEO Alan Joyce to give evidence so we can hold management to account. I'm looking forward to participating in the inquiry this Friday and hearing from unions and aviation experts about what sort of plans we can develop to ensure Qantas remains viable in the future and no further jobs are lost or offshored.
