Employees of State-owned airport management company, Dublin Airport Authority, have voted a restructuring plan entailing 275 permanent and 100 temporary job losees at Dublin, Cork and Shannon airports. The plan also includes a pay freeze until 2011. In an attempt to avoid pay cuts, the plan will also lead to the introduction of a novel Employee Recovery Investment Contribution scheme with staff facing pay reductions of on average 5.5 per cent from February 2010. Under the scheme employees will invest a percentage of their earnings and will recoup the money after three years or when the company is restored to profitability.

The DAA is confronted by significant falls in passenger traffic and commercial income. The State-owned company expects "minimal passenger growth" up to 2011.
