Just over half of Bord na Móna strikers back to work

Around 20 workers still refusing to go back to Lough Ree power plant.

STRIKING WORKERS AT THE Bord na Móna power plant in Co Longford have decided to hold a ballot on whether to return to work or not. The 40 staff members have been on unofficial strike since last week, in a continuing dispute with management over wages. The staff say they are owed money to cover loss of earning incurred during the station’s closure for maintenance. The Lough Ree power plant was closed for three months and is due to re-open. The company claims the workers failed to fulfil their duties by returning for work.

AER LINGUS CABIN CREW have called off a work-to-rule strike threatened for today over a roster dispute.

Impact, the trade union representing the crew, said it would suspend the action to allow “detailed consideration” of the findings issued by the Labour Relations Commission yesterday evening.

The LRC delivered an arbitration ruling on the dispute between crew and management.

The union said:

The detailed findings, which run to 39 pages and reflect the complex technical issues under consideration, deserve and demand close reading and analysis.

Time will also be required for cabin crew staff to read, digest and discuss the document.

Staff said the strike would not have affected the flight schedule.

The ongoing dispute between staff and management centres on a range of cost-cutting measures planned by the airline.

Yesterday the airline announced losses of over €20m for the first half of this year – a significant improvement on the €81.7m lost in the same period of last year.

FORTY EMPLOYEES AT the Bord na Móna power station in Longford have been taking off the payroll today following a dispute over pay.

The company says the workers failed to fulfil their duties.
