Mid West Mayors And Cathaoirligh Meet To Discuss Aer Lingus Job Cuts
Date: Friday, 30 October 2009
Location: Room 316, Aras Contae An Chlair, New Road, Ennis, Co Clare.
The Mayors and Cathaoirligh of the Mid-West Local and Regional Authorities will meet to develop a regional response to the recent announcement by Aer Lingus of pending job losses within the company. Earlier this month, the airline informed staff about proposals to remove the company’s US base at Shannon Airport with the loss of 102 cabin crew jobs as part of a new survival plan. Aer Lingus also aims to end the direct Shannon-New York route early in 2010, while ground crew at the airport will also face reduced hours.
