Aer cost cut plan ready for take-off; TRAVEL.

Byline: By BRIAN HUTTON

AER Lingus chiefs yesterday agreed to press ahead with a cost-cutting programme drawn up to make substantial savings at the airline.

Union leaders, who meet with management on Monday to hear the measures, have again vowed to fight any plans to outsource staff.

Siptu's Gerry McCormack said the union will wait to see what the proposals are but the union will not accept mass lay-offs.

He added: "How we respond to the plan will be decided on Monday at a meeting with shop stewards."

Workers fear the airline wants to axe 1,000 ground staff jobs in Dublin, Cork and Shannon by out - sourcing baggage handling and check-in.
