Qantas Airways Ltd Review Sparks Job Fears In Geelong-AAP
Tuesday, 17 Sep 2013 02:46am EDT 

Australian Associated Press reported that Qantas Airways Ltd has flagged a review of its Victorian aircraft maintenance work at Avalon in another feared job blow for the struggling Geelong region. Qantas's move, announced on September 17, 2013, quickly sparked union fears of up to 300 remaining engineering jobs being made redundant. The decision has come after Ford announced its Geelong plant closure in 2016, costing 510 jobs; Target slashed about 200 jobs; and Shell flagged the sale of its Geelong refinery, threatening some 450 local jobs. Geelong City Council acting mayor Bruce Harwood called on Qantas to retain jobs at Avalon, saying any reduction would be a disappointment. The Australian Workers Union (AWU) said the airline's review is code for closure and job cuts. But Qantas is stressing that no final decision has been made as the review at Avalon begins.  Full Article
