Aer Lingus Craft Group of Unions: Unite/TEEU/SIPTU members accept Aer Lingus pay deal

Craft unions to pursue other elements of Labour Court recommendation with Aer Lingus management

November 3rd: Trade unions which represents craft workers in Aer Lingus, announced this afternoon that members have voted by over 66 per cent to accept the pay deal brokered by the Labour Court at the beginning of September.

Commenting, Unite Regional Officer Willie Quigley, who chairs the craft group of unions in Aer Lingus, said that unions will now  engage with Aer Lingus management in relation to other elements of the Labour Court recommendation.

“This ballot result means that all craft and non-craft grades have voted to accept the Labour Court recommendation on pay.

“However, there is still work to be done to ensure that Aer Lingus workers share fully in Aer Lingus’s success, having made significant sacrifices to help the airline survive during the recession.

“The craft unions will now engage with Aer Lingus management in relation to the  other three elements of the Labour Court recommendation.  These include productivity and license pay, as well as profit-sharing arrangements which we see as an opportunity to negotiate further reward in return for the workers’ contribution to the company’s success”, Willie Quigley said.
