Varadkar urged to intervene in Aer Lingus dispute

Calls are mounting for the Minister for Transport and Tourism Leo Varadkar to intervene in the pensions dispute at Aer Lingus and the DAA.

Siptu members at the airline, along with staff at Dublin, Cork and Shannon airports will down tools on the morning of March 14 for four hours, between 5am and 9am.

The union has accused management of failing to engage in meaningful talks or to put forward reasonable proposals to resolve the row over pensions.

Fianna Fáil's Tourism Spokesperson, Timmy Dooley, says Minister Varadkar needs to get off the fence and help bring an end to the dispute.
