Aer Lingus to stage work stoppage on November 1930/10/2012 - 15:10:23
Aer Lingus passengers are facing flight disruptions in Ireland's three main airports on Monday November 19.
The Aer Lingus group of unions is to stage a two hour work stoppage between 10am and noon.
It follows the suspension of talks at the Labour Relations Commission on how to deal with a €750m deficit in the company pension scheme.
The work stoppage will affect flights at Dublin, Cork and Shannon airports.
Spokesman for the Unions, Bernard Harbour, says the stoppage will be cancelled if Aer Lingus agrees to return to the Labour Court for talks.
"The only reason they have decided to serve notice of industrial reaction is because of Aer Lingus' decision to pull out of this process.
"There is still time for Aer Lingus to do something about that to ensure there is no disruption by agreeing to come back into the process, come back into the Labour Court and talk about these problems and resolve them."
