Shannon air traffic controllers wildcat

Air traffic controllers at Shannon Airport were on wildcat strike for two hours this evening as part of a long running dispute.

The strike follows an unofficial overtime ban at Dublin airport last month. Ryanair claimed that flights from Dublin would also be affected by the strike.

According to RTE news, the IMPACT union had given assurances to the Irish Aviation Authority that air traffic controllers would return to normal working patterns. This is apparently the third bout of unofficial action in two weeks alongside as many assurances
