Airport strike unlikely

| December 31, 2012

INDUSTRIAL peace seemed likely at Shannon airport this week following a meeting between SIPTU and Transport Minister Leo Varadkar. Workers had voted for strike action, demanding guarantees on their terms and conditions under the new Shannon Airport Authority.

SIPTU official Tony Carroll said he felt the meeting had gone quite well and they are expecting to get some assurances in writing.

At the separation announcement earlier this month, Minister Varadkar said that while staff will transfer on the same conditions, long-term guarantees cannot be given.
