Qantas staff at Sydney Airport have threatened to walk out in the middle of the busy holiday season


(TVLW) – The Transport Workers Union says work teams have been cut from six people to five, which increases the risk of serious arm and back injuries.

A spokesman told the ABC that some workers do not report their injuries because they fear being moved to an inferior job.

The union says industrial action against the airline could happen as early as January, affecting the holiday travel plans of thousands of people.
