Ireland -Aer Lingus cabin crew accept conciliation proposals -November 20, 2013

Aer Lingus and its Shannon cabin crew have agreed on new transatlantic crewing levels proposed by the Labour Relations Commission. Air Lingus and trade unions came into conflict after unions refused to lower crewing levels on transatlantic flights from Shannon, whereupon the airline threatened to outsource the jobs. After talks with the LRC the parties agreed to keep operating the flights with direct hire employees. The initial flights, from 1 January 2014, will be operated by a crew of five. From March to July the crews will be reduced to four members, after which a review will be conducted.
