Aer Lingus workers walk out of meeting with Mannion15/11/2007 - 13:50:03
More than 100 Aer Lingus employees have walked out of a meeting called by the airline's chief executive, Dermot Mannion, today.
Mr Mannion had arranged the gathering at Dublin Airport to discuss the company's controversial cost-cutting plans.
However, workers staged a walkout to show their opposition to the plans.
Earlier this week, Mr Mannion sent a letter to Aer Lingus ground staff warning that they would be suspended if they took part in industrial action next week.
The ground staff are planning four-hour stoppages on Tuesday and Friday to protest against inferior contracts being introduced for new staff as part of the cost-cutting measures.
