Aer Lingus Plagued by Strike
Feb. 07, 2001
DUBLIN, Ireland (AP) _ A one-day strike by cabin crew canceled all but a handful of Aer Lingus flights Wednesday.
The airline said it was operating only about a dozen of its 160 scheduled flights because of the action by 1,300 employees represented by the Impact union.
The union plans another one-day strike on Friday in its dispute about working conditions.
The union has complained about longer working days, faster turnaround times, and a reduction of compensatory time off for overtime.
Meanwhile, British Midland said it was operating only four of its scheduled 16 services to Dublin Wednesday because of a strike by ground staff which began Monday.
