On the other hand, anything that distracts from the car-crash that is Troy Buswell can’t be all bad.

Qantas strike tomorow the first of many?

Qantas’ dispute with its engineers appears to have taken a turn for the worse. The union is demanding a five percent per year wage rise, while the airline is offering two percent. The four hour strike tomorrow between 2pm and 6pm which will result in the cancellation of at least 12 domestic flights may be just the beginning as Qantas is threatening to break the dispute with non-union labour, targeting retired engineers and expat staff.

We can only hope this is all resolved before it gets really nasty for passengers.

Update: Walkoff off.
