Members are advised that the ALAEA served a dispute notice on Jetstar and appeared in the Fair Work Commission (FWC) Melbourne 9 November 2016, in relation to the current PIP/NPS dispute.
 
The dispute concerns the methodology used by the airline to determine the values which are used in the formulas set out in clause 26.10 of the JETSTAR AIRWAYS ENGINEERING & MAINTENANCE ENTERPRISE AGREEMENT 2013, which determine a performance incentive payment to employees.
 

The Association claims and alleges Jetstar manipulated the system leading to a lower outcome financially disadvantaging the membership.

We believe the airline either could not or world not explain what formula they used to work out the PIP /NPS.
 
On the 9 November 2016, at the FWC the ALAEA had a victory. Jetstar will now write to the Association by COB 16 November 2016, outlining what methodology is used by the airline to determine the values which are used in the formulas set out in clause 26.10 of the JETSTAR AIRWAYS ENGINEERING & MAINTENANCE ENTERPRISE AGREEMENT 2013, which determine a performance incentive payment to employees.
 
Until this matter was dealt with by the FWC the airline would not move.
 
Upon receipt of Jetstar’s correspondence the Association will have the document assessed by our legal department to determine the next step.
 
We will keep members posted via further notices.
