  1. Fórsa seeks German-style income supports as aviation faces a ‘second lost summer’ – 3rd Feb 2021

    Fórsa general secretary Kevin Callinan today (Thursday) said his union was seeking German-style State supports for aviation jobs and incomes in light of tighter ongoing restrictions on air travel, which will likely mean a second consecutive ‘lost summer’ for the industry.

    Mr Callinan also said he would press the Government to implement recommendations in the July 2020 report of its Taskforce for Aviation, and a December 2020 Oireachtas report on the emergency in the sector, which he said had been largely ignored.

    The 80,000-strong union, which represents several thousand aviation workers in airlines, airports, regulatory bodies and air traffic control, said Ireland lacked a European-style joined-up Government approach to underpin jobs in the sector, protect aviation infrastructure, and ensure the survival of a viable post-pandemic industry.
