The Australian airline Qantas has grounded its entire global fleet in reaction to what it claims are 'unreasonable' union demands over pay and conditions. Domestic and international flights were halted at 5pm (6am GMT).

Qantas's CEO, Alan Joyce said he was left with no other option:

"This course of action has been forced on us because of the damage done by three unions," he said. "I want to say how sorry I am that this course of action has become necessary." Grounding the fleet will cost Qantas $A20m (£13m) a day.

Qantas has been in dispute with three unions over pay and conditions. The unions, representing engineers, ground, baggage and catering staff and long haul pilots have been holding industrial action, including rolling strikes, over the past few weeks.

On Friday, 10,000 Qantas customers were affected by the dispute, which is costing the airline $A15m a week. Flights on the airline's most lucrative sector along Australia's east coast are down 25% on the same time last year.

Justitia australiana a ordonat incetarea timp de 3 luni a oricarei greve, pentru a lasa timp celor 2 parti (sindicate si conducere) sa ajunga la un compromis.

Zborurile vor fi reluate luni (31 oct) dupa amiaza. Se estimeaza ca imobilizarea flotei de 108 avioane ar costa 20 milioane eur. Peste 70 000 pasageri au ramas blocati in strainatate.
