Aer Lingus Strike Action Postponed

Upcoming strike action by Aer Lingus cabin Crew has been called off to allow for consideration of a Labour Court recommendation, which is due to be issued today (12 June).

IMPACT, representing cabin crew, and Aer Lingus management have been holding talks this week in an effort to resolve a dispute over work rosters.

The crew had planned to hold two days of strikes next week, but the union has now announced that that action has been postponed pending consideration of a recommendation to be made by the Labour Court.
