Ireland - Air Lingus talks still in deadlock - January 30, 2011

The Labour Relation Committee (LRC) is expected to soon make an renewed conciliation attempt as to restart talks between Aer Lingus and cabin crew members of the IMPACT union. The conflict, leading to the grounding of dozens of flights daily, is already in its third week. It focuses on new rosters for cabin crew, that have seen some 300 members of staff suspended by the airline after it claimed they refused to co-operate with the new work practices. Earlier talks in the LRC were adjourned without agreement. Efforts by the ICTU union confederation and the IBEC employers’ association to find a solution also shipwrecked.
