Belfast crew to gain 5%
by Bernard Harbor
Aer Lingus cabin crew based in Belfast airport are in line for salary increases worth 5% over two years, after a Fórsa-negotiated pay deal was accepted by a margin of 80%-20% in a recent ballot.
The deal will deliver an increase of 2.5% effective from 1st October 2019, and another 2.5% in October of this year. It expires at the end of September 2021.
The new agreement follows a similar arrangement negotiated by the union for the two years up to September 2019. This was also worth 5% over two years. It also increased commission on domestic flights and introduced a performance payment for exceeding ‘key performance indicators.’
