Aer Lingus outsourcing row talks to resume at LRC
TALKS between Aer Lingus management and cabin crew union IMPACT will resume on Thursday at the Labour Relations Commission in a bid to resolve a row over outsourcing of crew on new transatlantic routes from Shannon.
The flights are due to start in January but the airline said last month that it will shut the Shannon cabin crew base after their refusal to operate the new routes using smaller planes and fewer workers.
The move affects 86 staff who have also voted to take industrial action over the move.
Aer Lingus has told the staff they will be offered alternative jobs in Dublin or Cork, or other alternatives to the Shannon jobs.
Talks at the LRC already took place on Friday and Saturday and will resume Thursday.
