Airline with Manx routes votes for strikes

Wed, 21 Sep 2016

One of the airlines that serves the Island could be heading for strikes after voting in favour of industrial action.

Employees of easyJet - which operates three routes in and out of Ronaldsway - are unhappy at having to work while fatigued.

Union BALPA is hoping to avoid a walkout though, with talks between workers and the company due to take place tomorrow.

The airline has come under fire from Manx travellers recently because of punctuality and cancellations.

88% of pilots and 96% of workers in total voted in favour of action.
