Public Sector Staff
193. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if any public servants working for a group (details supplied) were put on short time working during the pandemic; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [3202/22]
I would like to thank the Deputy for this question.
The Covid-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on Shannon Group and as a result measures were required to taken across the Group to control costs in response to the reduction in its revenues. These measures included amongst other measures the temporary lay-off and reduced working hours for certain employees. The Group has continued to work closely with employees to enable where possible the return to work of employees on temporary lay-off and for resumption of full working hours.
