Irish exporters demand no strike clause

FOLLOWING the Irish air traffic controllers strike last week, the Irish Exporters Association (IEA) has called for the government to add no strike clause to the controllers’ terms of employment.John Whelan (right), chief executive of the IEA, said: “Each day of the year, we export approximately €215 million of goods by air, much of which is temperature-controlled, time-sensitive pharmaceuticals.“Any disruption to the supply line creates instant problems to our trading partners. If we want to remain competitive in the pharmaceutical market we have to be able to assure our clients abroad of the security of the supply line to them from Ireland.”
