Over 250 Jetstar employees from the ground and baggage crew began striking on Friday to demand improved conditions and a pay increase.

The strikes will take place over the next week and will disrupt a significant number of domestic and international flights. Here are the flights that have been cancelled so far.

Jetstar has preemptively cancelled a large number of flights due to the strikes, which have been organised by the Australian Federation of Airline Pilots and the Transport Workers Unions.

According to the ABC, the strikes are taking place in two hour blocks and started in Adelaide and Brisbane at 6:00am, with Melbourne striking between 9:30am and 11am.

The next strikes to take place on Friday will be 4:00pm to 6:00pm in Melbourne, 5:30pm – 7:30pm in Sydney and 6:00pm to 8:00pm in Brisbane and Adelaide.

Customers have been warned to expect disruptions to services, as well as cancellations.

Chilean Plane Carrying 38 Passengers Disappears During Flight To Antarctica

Operators lost contact with a C-130 Hercules military aircraft on Monday at 6:13 pm GMT—almost an hour and a half into a flight carrying 21 passengers and 17 crew members to Antarctica, according to a statement released by the Chilean Air Force.

The strikes have resulted from the airline rejecting workers demand for a 4 per cent pay increase, minimum hours and safety regulation improvements.

The workers and the unions are also asking for an increase in rest breaks and 12-hour breaks between shifts.

Transport Workers Union (TWU) secretary Peter Biagini said to the ABC that workers are on less than $25 an hour and that the increase isn’t that much to ask.

“It doesn’t only give them a decent pay but it also ensures that they’re not fatigued and they’re working safely.”

Mr Biagini also claimed that staffing levels have been cut drastically and that broken equipment was being used.

“Jetstar also allows broken equipment and machines to be kept in use despite the risk to workers and passengers. This is causing injury rates to go through the roof.”

Jetstar has disputed this claim and stated that it would not put passengers or staff at work.

Strikes are said to be running through to December 20. We are yet unaware of which flights might be cancelled next week, but we do have a list of those pre-preemptively cancelled on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of this week. If other flights are added for later dates we will update this this.
