Qantas has officially rejected a bid from the Transport Workers Union (TWU) and accounting firm EY, over a decision to axe over 2,000 workers from it’s ranks.

The Australian airline giant decided to outsource the workers, where it is estimated they can save over $100 million a year.

National Secretary from the TWU, Michael Kaine, believes this decision by Qantas is unwarranted, considering the Job Seeker payments they are receiving for employing their workers throughout the pandemic.

Pat Fordham has the story.
