Calls For Assurances That No Cork Airport Workers Will Be Laid Off
The Government is being called to provide assurances that no workers will be laid off at Cork Airport when it closes temporarily next month.
In July, Aer Lingus confirmed that it will not temporarily lay off its employees at the airport while runway repairs are completed.
The announcement came following reassurances from the Government regarding the continuation of the Employment Wage Subsidy Scheme.
In today’s Echo Solidarity TD Mick Barry claims that workers with other airport employers have yet to receive similar guarantees.
The Cork North Central TD said that the Government needs to make it clear that the employers will be able to avail of the
Employment Wage Subsidy Scheme for the duration of the repairs.
