Shop stewards to discuss possible Aer Lingus action

SIPTU shop stewards at Aer Lingus are meeting today to discuss the possibility of industrial action over the airline's latest cost-cutting plans.

The company's management walked out of talks at the Labour Relations Commission earlier this week, accusing the union of not engaging meaningfully.

It says it will now press ahead with its own plans to make €74m in savings through a series of measures that could lead to the outsourcing of up to 1,500 jobs.

SIPTU has warned of industrial action if the cuts are imposed unilaterally and is already balloting its members on the matter.
