AUSTRALIAN AIRPORTS: PROTECT SECURITY GUARDS TO SAFEGUARD AGAINST A SECOND WAVE

We the undersigned call on Australian Airports to ensure that they do not become the source of another wave of COVID-19 by respecting and valuing the professional guards working there.

The security industry across Australia is riddled with dodgy players who use subcontracting to avoid responsibilities and make huge profits. The Quarantine Hotel disaster in Melbourne has demonstrated the cost these practices can have on the Australian community.

Right now there is the risk that security companies operating at Airports in Australia will use the COVID-19 downturn as an opportunity to get rid of their experienced and professional guards and bring the terrible practices seen in Melbourne’s quarantine hotels to airports across Australia.

We call on Australian Airports to defend experienced and professional guards and support them so that they can ensure our Airports are COVID-19 safe, the economy can open up and Australian Airports don’t become the source of another virus wave.
