Jobs at Shannon Aerospace (www.shannonaerospace.com) could be in jeopardy according to a report in the Sunday Independant. Martin Kaiser is quoted as saying the company is “certainly a danger of it closing down”. Shannon Aerospace, an aviation overhaul company, which employs 700 staff in their offices in Shannon, Co. Clare, are a subsidiary of Lufthansa Tecknik AG.
Mr Kaiser continued, he warned that if by April 30th a pay resolution with SIPTU isn’t achieved “the future of the company will not be decided by local management here but by our main shareholder, the German airline Lufthansa” . Shannon Aerospace has had an on going confrontation with workers and SIPTU over pay levels and costs.
We’re sure that this will be one of the hot jobs new topics in the coming month in Ireland, let’s hope that this all pans out for the best.
