Qantas CEO ordered to attend mediation session for compensation for sacked workers | Englishheadline


The new CEO of Qantas has been ordered to attend a mediation session to determine compensation for 1,700 workers illegally sacked by the airline.

This comes after there was a union push to have the compensation determined by the court but this was rejected.

Lawyers representing the Transport workers’ union said an open court process would be a more transparent approach but the bid was rejected by the Federal Court on Wednesday by Judge Justice Michael Lee who has ordered both parties to mediation.

Lawyers for Qantas wanted their top in-house General Counsel Andrew Finch to be the representative of the company through the mediation process.

However, this was also rejected by the judge, who said new CEO Vanessa Hudson needs to attend at least one major mediation session.
