The Transport Minister has urged Aer Lingus and DAA workers not to go on strike. SIPTU members at both companies are pursuing industrial action over a deficit in their pension scheme and say a strike over the St. Patrick’s Day period is likely. Leo Varadkar says a strike will not solve the problem but could make it worse. He is asking both sides to go back into talks to resolve their problems. “I think it’s fair to say that the government always takes the threat of strike action very seriously – there is a solution that can be found to this problem, but as the Tanaiste said it’s going to require negotiations and a bit of give and take from both sides” he said.
