Jetstar says no to staff exploitation

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J Jetstar has gone on the defensive, rejecting employee claims that the low-cost carrier is exploiting its staff and forcing them to work long hours.Earlier this week cabin crew told media that the Qantas subsidiary compromises flight safety by often expecting its staff to work up to 20-hour shifts with no breaks between return flights, ABC News reported.However, chief executive Bruce Buchanan denied the claims, stating that rostered shifts do not exceed up to 14 hours and that the carrier implements “the highest level” of fatigue procedures. Mr Buchanan added that he does not see truth in the majority of claims and that in-line with industry there are circumstances that result in people working extra hours. “If someone is extending, we take them off the next day and make sure they get some rest,” he explained.”Fatigue risk management is about creating rest periods, either when they are flying or when they are on the ground.”He concluded that the carrier also encourages its staff to notify the airline if they are feeling fatigued and management will ensure they are taken off “that shift”. last_img read more
