I’ve got an unconfirmed report from a reliable source here, that the refuellers at Sydney Airport are on strike. It is unlear if this means just some of the refuellers, or all of them…or what the story is, but the bottom line, if this turns out to be true, we could have aeronautical delays and madness on our hands.
Again, this is unconfirmed, but from a reliable source.
Update (10:11PM): Turns out it was true, but by the time I posted it the drama was almost over. According to news.com.au:
The meeting was called this afternoon by staff of Airport Refuelling Service, a Qantas subsidiary.
The workers met for a few hours to discuss their concerns with job security and entitlements.
Flights resumed about 5.30pm (AEDT), a spokesman for Sydney Airport Corporation said.
“It’s all over now,” he said.
He said three flights had been affected but the delays were short.
