Qantas Shuts Down Operations in a Labor Dispute

Earlier this morning Qantas shut down its entire operation (excluding Jetstar) because of a labor dispute with its unions. The airline is saying it’s a safety measure, as they have scheduled a lockout of employees beginning Monday morning and they are trying to prevent any sabotage by employees.

There’s a meeting with an arbitrator scheduled for later today, which may allow them to re-start operations. This Milepoint thread has pretty up-to-date info.
