YOU'RE INVITED TO JOIN A SOCIAL MEDIA THUNDERCLAP FOR QATAR AIRWAYS CABIN CREW The FAAA invites all members to JOIN a Social Media 'THUNDERCLAP' MESSAGE VIA Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr The 'Thunderclap' is part of the International Women's Day (IWD) and International Transport Federation (ITF) campaign to support our fellow Cabin Crew employed by Qatar Airways who face many of the challenges that are no longer present for Australian cabin crew, such as pregnancy and marriage discrimination. Ninety percent of Qatar Airways workforce are foreign workers. The terms and conditions of employment for women cabin crew are draconian and at best, belong in the dark ages. Women are prevented from marrying and pregnancy means dismissal. There are restrictions where workers can eat and drink, what transport they can use, and women cannot be seen in public with male friends. Breaking regulations is likely to result in sacking and deportation. But you can help ..... by taking part in a Social Media Thunderclap! With your support, Thunderclap blasts out a specially timed one-off Facebook Post or Tweet from all supporters (see below) creating a wave of attention to the cause. Find out more about the Thunderclap and Campaign by clicking here. THUNDERCLAP: "I'm standing up for women's rights at #QatarAirways on #IWD– join me!!

Our sole focus is on the long term job security of crew and overall improvements of cabin crew working conditions. Our staff and resources are entirely dedicated to the interests of cabin crew and cabin crew alone. After all, we are a collective of cabin crew looking after each other. We have an extensive network of FAAA Delegates available to assist members, and in good times and in rocky times, Delegates are busy assisting members with queries and helping wherever they can. We have had a number of inquiries regarding the challenges ahead.
