List of Recommendations

Recommendation 1

The committee recommends that JobKeeper, or wage subsidies modelled off JobKeeper, be continued by the Australian Government to support aviation workers and organisations at the cessation of the JobKeeper scheme in March 2021. This support should be tailored to the economic conditions and government restrictions, including international border restrictions.

Recommendation 2

The committee recommends that Australian workers who pay tax and are employed by companies wholly owned by foreign sovereign entities, and Australian local government-owned entities should be eligible to apply for any wage subsidies or other Australian Government support programs for the aviation industry after the cessation of JobKeeper.

Recommendation 3

The committee recommends that the Australian Government consider making any further support to the aviation sector conditional on companies agreeing to:
not further weaken the job security of employees;
maintain existing regional services; and
implement moratoriums on the payment of dividends, executive bonuses and executive pay increases.
