Up To 700 Aer Lingus Jobs In Danger Of Being Outsourced If Staff Ballot Is Rejected
As reported in The Irish Independent, up to 700 Aer Lingus jobs at Dublin, Cork and Shannon airports are in danger of being outsourced if staff fail to agree to changes to work practices and conditions at a ballot being held next week.
The airline is trying to restructure after racking up huge losses because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is believed that the airline, which is part of the International Airlines Group (IAG) that also owns British Airways, Iberia and Vueling, will move to outsource ground handling operations at Dublin, Cork and Shannon airports if staff reject the carrier's proposals.
