AER LINGUS SERVICES have resumed today following a 24-hour strike by cabin crew in response to a dispute over work schedules.
The airline was forced to ground almost all its flights yesterday, at an estimated cost of €10m, as several hundred cabin crew protested at Dublin Airport.
The dispute, according to a letter from the crew represented by IMPACT and which was released to media, revolves around a new roster which does not allow staff to plan their rest time. The staff claim that “stable roster patterns like the one we’ve proposed are already in use in other airlines”.
Talks aimed at finding a solution to the dispute have been arranged for next Wednesday.
