The ACTU will lodge legal action against Qantas in the Fair Work Commission on 24 June over its payment of employee bonuses. The ACTU will allege that the airline is discriminating against employees on collective agreements, in that it will only pay a $2,000 bonus once employees sign on to Qantas-endorsed enterprise agreements; the ACTU notes that some collective agreements do not expire until late 2020. Former Qantas chairman Leigh Clifford noted at its 2018 AGM that the same conditions applied to its last three bonuses.

Qantas Airways has informed the market that a new enterprise bargaining agreement (EBA) has been approved by 130 staff after negotiations with the United Voice union. A majority of 61% voted for the deal, which includes a moratorium on wage rises for 1.5 years. However a far larger number of employees, represented by the Transport Workers Union (TWU), will vote on their EBA in February 2015. The TWU has been very vocal in the past in its criticism of Qantas CEO Alan Joyce, but has agreed to a similar wage freeze to be followed by increases of 3% per annum
