THE Transport Workers Union (TWU) has confirmed that one-hour stoppages will be held at airports across Australia on Friday.

Baggage handlers and ground staff in major airports including Sydney, Melbourne, Cairns, Brisbane, Adelaide, Darwin, Perth and Canberra will walk off the job for an hour at various times during the day.

TWU national secretary Tony Sheldon said Qantas employees had hoped Friday's stopwork would be to ratify the company's promise of job security under the next enterprise bargaining agreement.

"Regrettably, after a week of untruths and subterfuge by the company, the meetings will instead consider a wholly inadequate offer and a further round of stoppages," Mr Sheldon said in a statement.

"Qantas yesterday confirmed that, in fact, it wants to outsource entire operations areas and not employ a single new person on Qantas conditions."
