Aer Lingus cabin crew organised a 24-hour strike over rosters. Pickets were placed on Dublin, Cork and Shannon Airports and the cabin crew marched through Dublin Airport to Aer Lingus headquarters to hand in a letter to management outlining their position. Meanwhile, efforts are continuing to arrange a date for a meeting between management and trade union Impact in a bid to resolve the row. The cabin crew says their current roster is erratic and imposes excessive fatigue on them. They want the same roster that applies to pilots, which involves working 5 days on, then 3 days off.
