Talks Resume With Union And Airline

Talks have resumed between unions representing cabin crew and Aer Lingus management in a dispute over a more structured work roster.

Cabin crew want a roster similar to one in place for pilots, which would see them work for five days and then be off for three.

The crew have already staged a one day work stoppage in the dispute and on Tuesday the airline revoked staff travel privileges, which allows them cheap airfare, from all crew who took part in the industrial action.

It is understood that the union will stage further work stoppages if an agreement is not reached in the talks.
