Irish work to rule

AER LINGUS cabin crew have voted overwhelmingly to take industrial action in a row over the implementation of cost reduction measures, but do not intend to cause flight disruption.  The in-flight staff, represented by the IMPACT union, voted 96% in favour on a turnout of 67% a comfortable overall majority.  The cabin crew plan to work-to-rule under the terms of their existing contracts and not adhere to changes the company has tried to introduce as part of a cost-cutting programme.  This could lead to frustration by passengers, particularly on UK flights where the cabin service period is very limited. www.impact.ie www.aerlingus.com
