Aer Lingus staff will face lay-offs from June 21st

Fórsa have stated that Aer Lingus staff face lay-offs, reduced hours and reduced pay from the 21st of June as the Government wage subsidy will expire.

The premature decision allows a month of negotiations to be explored.

Fórsa official ‘Angela Kirk’ stated “To act unilaterally now, and to abandon the efforts to negotiate a solution to the current crisis, and plan for a future recovery, is to squander the time remaining to negotiate real solutions”.

Aer Lingus had previously stated that its 4,500-strong workforce would have to be reduced by 20% in order to cut costs for the Covid-19 crisis.
