Estimates for Public Services 2021
Vote 29 - Environment, Climate and Communications (Revised)
Vote 31 - Transport (Revised)
On the issue of my engagement on the aviation sector, there are two processes going on. One is with the national civil aviation development forum, which I referenced earlier. The CEOs of the airlines and the airports are represented on that body. The second group is the LEEF, which I chair and which is attended by delegations from ICTU and IBEC. Several issues were raised at the LEEF regarding employees. Departmental officials also attend those meetings. There is also engagement between the Departments of Social Protection and Enterprise, Trade and Employment on the matter. The Deputy can rest assured that there is ongoing engagement on several levels from the point of view of employees as well as the airlines.
