Virgin Australia announced (30-Aug-2021) it is commencing consultation with employees and unions over its proposal to require coronavirus vaccination for all team members, on the basis that vaccination is necessary to keep their people, customers and the wider Australian community safe. A consultation process will commence shortly with relevant unions, employees and safety committees. Under the proposed policy, frontline team members will be required to be vaccinated by 15-Nov-2021, and all office-based team members by 31-Mar-2022. Following consultation, and after considering feedback from employees and unions, a final policy will be announced in Sep-2021. Virgin Australia understands some team members have concerns and questions and has established an education campaign to assure and inform as many employees as possible ahead of 15-Nov-2021. Virgin Australia will launch its VA-X & WIN competition for staff and customers this week to encourage all Australians to get behind vaccination.
