TONY JONES, PRESENTER: Qantas baggage handlers have called off a two-hour strike planned for
tomorrow.

The Transport Workers Union says it's cancelled the industrial action as a show of good faith.
Ground crew and catering staff were also expected to walk off the job tomorrow afternoon.

The union said its members had misgivings about going ahead with the strike during the busy school
holiday period.

Qantas said the announcement comes too late and many flights have already been cancelled or
delayed.
