More airport strikes in Ireland

Air traffic controllers in Ireland have voted 99% in favour of industrial action in a continued dispute over staffing.

Workers have maintained an unofficial overtime ban this week, resulting in dozens of cancelled flights at Shannon airport this week which has now developed into a strike vote by the trade union IMPACT. It is unclear whether the vote will result in the overtime ban becoming official, or whether the union will call strike days - any official action will require two weeks notice.
