Aer Lingus staff vote on industrial action

Air travellers face disruption next month if agreement is not reached in a dispute between Aer Lingus management and cabin crews.

The trade union Impact is asking Aer Lingus staff to vote on industrial action over the company's revised working hours.

The union said staff rosters had been changed unilaterally by Aer Lingus despite an agreement reached in March.

Staff have until 9 August to decide on what action to take.

Aer Lingus said it was entitled to make the changes after 93% of cabin crew member had voted in favour of the agreement.
