IAA's bid to avert threatened air strike struck out

A legal bid by the Irish Aviation Authority to avert a threatened strike by air traffic controllers in Ireland has been struck out and the matter has been referred to the Labour Relations Commmission.

Mark Connaughtan, S.C., who appeared with barrister Tom Mallon for the Authority, told Mr Justice Gerard Hogan today that an application for an injunction restraining industrial action by the trade union Impact could be struck out.

He said the matter that had come before the court earlier this week had been resolved.

The court heard that the dispute over threatened industrial action, on rates of pay and threatened non co-operation with the transfer of air space from the UK to Ireland, had been reduced to a written agreement following talks between the parties.

Later a union spokesman confirmed that all legal proceedings before the High Court had been withdrawn and the matter would now go to the Labour Relations Commission.
