Re:  Cork Airport Runway Reconstruction and Extension

Dear Brendan

I refer to the above mentioned which I understand has been scheduled to take place over a ten week period commencing on 10th September 2021. While the decision to upgrade the runway is very welcome in the context of future business re-growth and job security, you will appreciate the announcement brings with it a certain level of anxiety for our members in respect of tenure of employment during that period.

For that reason, we are seeking clarity regarding the impact if any for our members in an effort to provide them with certainty around working, earnings and annual leave arrangements for the time period involved.

In that regard, I would appreciate if you would contact the undersigned to arrange a mutually convenient date and time for a meeting.


Yours sincerely
for Mandate Trade Union
