Thanks to the corrupt influence of Dublin and the D4 elite, Gaway airport is about to close. The disgraceful actions of BOI are shocking. This airport in 2007 had a passenger numbers of over 300,000 and 15 routes. Dublin wont be happy until we west of Ireland people are living in mud huts. Knock is next on their list!
THE REMAINING STAFF at Galway Airport began a sit-in last night in attempts to guarantee the payment of their redundancy packages when their contracts cease later this month.
Fears that they would not receive their statutory redundancies grew yesterday as the company which operates the airport failed to guarantee that funds would be available for the payments.
Funding from the Government was initially earmarked to pay the remaining 14 staff but some of this money has since been removed from the company’s deposit account by Bank of Ireland to offset loans.“The money from the government was given for a specific reason. That was taxpayers money earmarked for statutory redundancy payments,” he said.
When news of the Bank of Ireland move came out over the weekend, the workers asked for the payments to be brought forward.
Of the €1.6 million the airport had in its account, €1.1 million was transferred to offset against its term loans, leaving €500,000 to cover redundancy payments as well as ongoing operations.
