Aer Lingus Strike gets more likely

Industrial action by staff at the former Irish National Airline, Aer Lingus, seems increasingly likely in the short term as recent talks broke down today between unions and management.

Siptu, the main union at the airline, said efforts to resolve the dispute over the circa €750 million deficit in the pension fund at Aer Lingus and the state owned Dublin Airport Authority ended at the Labour Relations Commission.

The union claimed the breakdown in the talks occurred when Aer Lingus representatives refused to meet unions representing the staff pension committees.
