As an employee of Aer Lingus, I have to say that I am unenthused about WW's desire to float the company, under his MBO proposal. I believe it would involve more extensive staff cuts, more "yellow-packing" of staff terms and conditions(except the pilots) and a further "Ryanair"-isation of the company. This is purely driven by WW's desire to enrich himself. He wants to flog us off and get a big slice for himself before he heads off to some other company. As for the pilots' alleged desire to buy out the company, I wouldn't want to work for them. My terms and conditions are very inferior to theirs and it would only get worse.The pilot ranks gave up the least, in terms of job cuts and alteration of conditions,than any other staff grade,during the last round of cuts, to help make the company profitable. Their interests are not mine.
If the company has to be floated, then it should be on terms that allow the least-paid to make some kind of credible gain before their jobs are wiped out.
