Well done that man.

Bit hard to tell from the pic if its definitely him. But if it is, that’s awesome. That’s something I love about the private sector, if someone calls in sick, essential services like cleaning don’t just stop. In a well-run organisation the people at the top will do the job when no one else is available.

You just don’t get that in the public sector.

Not uncommon for senior managers at major airports to be helping with bags when ground handlers go on strike – cleaning tables? also not surprising.

Stephen isn’t just the MD, he’s Terry Snow’s son. So it’s not as if he needs the cash from cleaning tables.

For all the barbed comments about the Snow family from Canberra folks, I’ve always gotten the impression that they’re fairly down to earth, practically people. The whole family seems to be involved in the airport in various ways, they’re not in a walled castle somewhere letting paid minion runs the place. I’ve worked for bosses who have gone out and started cleaning trash off the sales floor.

Regardless, it will probably result in a new fee being levied

I work in the public sector and that is a pretty accurate assessment.

Here in the real world, I’ve never seen my CEO behind the reception desk.

I agree. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve been working for a guvvy department and am waiting on something only to have the usual excuses trotted out:

“Fred was sick so it didn’t get done”
“That team’s under a lot of pressure at the moment”
“They had to do a job for the minister”
“It got sent to the wrong team and they didn’t pass it on”

and so on.

so how does this relate to whether senior public servants do menial jobs or not?

You’re an idiot.

“Stephen [Byron] is a third generation member of the Snow family and a long-term resident of Canberra…

Together with his father Terry Snow, Stephen recognised that the sale of Canberra Airport by the Commonwealth in 1998 would provide a new era of opportunity for Canberra, the ACT and the surrounding region.”
