SIPTU worker representatives employed by the daa in Dublin Airport have declared no confidence in their management and have begun preparations for balloting union members for industrial action in a dispute over the repeated failure to pay staff wages on time. SIPTU TEAC Division Organiser, Karan O Loughlin, said: “At a special meeting of the SIPTU daa section committee, yesterday (Thursday 22nd September), worker representatives voted no confidence in daa management and the MyTime pay system which was introduced by the company in 2019. Problems with this pay system have resulted in inaccurate payments to staff for the last nine consecutive months. “This week wages for thousands of airport workers that were due to be paid on Wednesday 21stSeptember did not arrive in their accounts on time. this debacle is the latest in a series of ongoing and consistent irregularities with the payment of wages to our members. These have included under payments, overpayments or no payment at all. This has resulted in missed direct debits and a number of people missing work as they did not have money for petrol due to delays in the payment of their wages.  “After everything our members endured this summer, the least the company can do is ensure they get paid, in full, and on time. It is disgraceful and disrespectful that the daa think there is no urgency to rectify this issue.” She added: “In May, following the presentation by SIPTU members of a letter to the Chairperson of the daa Board of Directors concerning the difficulties with the payment system, there was a commitment from the company that these problems would be rectified. This has not happened. “SIPTU worker representatives are now undertaking a consultative process with members in the various sections of Dublin Airport with a view to balloting them for industrial action if this problem is not resolved.”
