Round one to Qantas CEO Alan Joyce, who last October grounded the entire Qantas fleet to prevent further rolling strike action from three miltant unions and force them into official arbitration with Fair Work Australia (FWA). Yesterday the FWA tribunal endorsed an workplace agreement between Qantas and the Australian Licenced Aircraft Engineers Association (ALAEA) that’s effective through to the end of 2014.

Joyce said: “The determination from Fair Work Australia does not contain any of the restrictive demands that would have handed control of parts of the airline to the union.” Qantas is still  negotiating with the Australian and International Pilots Association and the Transport Workers Union through FWA.
