The Qantas Dispute

22 November 2011

Emeritus Professor Ron McCallum AO commented on plans by the Transport Workers Union to mount a legal challenge to Fair Work's order on October 31 to terminate industrial action against Qantas.

In an interview published in today's Sydney Morning Herald, Emeritus Professor McCallum said it was highly unlikely the Federal Court would grant the TWU a stay, which would allow its members to take legal strike action.

''The [union's case] would have to successfully argue that Fair Work acted contrary to the law, that they misconstrued their powers … and that will be very hard to do,'' he said.
