Unions want domestic cabin crew urgently vaccinated
The Transport Workers’ Union is calling on rapid pre-flight testing and domestic cabin crews to be made a priority group for COVID-19 vaccination.
It comes after a Virgin flight attendant was caught up in Sydney’s outbreak and put passengers on a number of flights on alert.
National Secretary Michael Kaine told Ben Fordham cabin crew should be urgently vaccinated.
“There’s no mandatory national standard to ensure that workers are tested pre-flight and are tested post-flight.
“Aviation is the transmitter of this to other jurisdictions and we can’t have a weak link.”
