The Unite trade union today announced that workers at Waterford Regional Airport will take indefinite strike action from next Wednesday.
The strike will comprise full withdrawal of labour and placing of pickets, and will be of indefinite duration.
According to the union, management have cut workers’ hours from 39 to 21 hours per week without agreement, and has refused to allow workers into their place of work to work their currently agreed rosters.
Unite regional officer Tony Kelly said: "Management can resolve this dispute immediately by reversing their unilateral decision to slash workers’ hours, allowing our members back in to work, and engaging meaningfully with Unite on a way forward for Waterford Regional Airport."
Unite represents 12 ground staff and firefighters at Waterford Regional Airport.
