Aer Lingus pilots to seek talks with management over roster row

Aer Lingus pilots who last month voted in favour of taking industrial action over rostering concerns are likely to push for meetings with airline management before Christmas to begin talks to settle the row.

It is thought that pilots are keen to have the issue resolved before the implementation of the airline's summer rosters, which will begin to come into effect around April next year.

The pilots, represented by the Irish Airline Pilots' Association, balloted last month in favour of industrial action, but have not engaged in any such moves.

The airline's cabin crew are already working to rule in a similar dispute, claiming it is implementing changes beyond those agreed in the Greenfield cost-savings plan.
