Hurray! A sign of relief to thousands of QANTAS customers after Fair Work Australia, an independent industrial disputes tribunal, has ordered a permanent end to the industrial dispute that has grounded all Qantas flights. It ordered both QANTAS management and the three unions to immediately resume flights and return to the negotiating table to resolve this industrial dispute. The parties now have 21 days to reach an agreement or face binding arbitration.  Fair Work Australia issued this ruling after hearing evidences from the  airline, unions, and government at an emergency session in Melbourne.
