Six Brisbane aircraft maintenance engineers claim they were unfairly stood down for three months after they reported faulty cockpit doors on 20 Qantas aircraft could be opened with Paddle Pop sticks.

Old news, they are Sunstate Engineers who reported the fault to CASA after the company said it wasn't an issue. The company then stood them down for 'sabotage'.
Long story short they ave all now been made redundant, and the work outsourced.
If you are close enough to see me then you should buy me a beer.
