Dublin Airport to create 500 jobs – claimDublin City, Featured Updates, Fingal, News, Santry, Swords Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010
The Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) claimed today it is to “create more than 500 new jobs” at the soon-to-be opened Terminal Two.
However, the airport authority did not say how many of these “new jobs” are staff from the old Terminal One transferring to the new building. Calls to the DAA this afternoon went unanswered.
The Irish Independent recently reported that workers were opposing an offer from the authority to move 100 workers to the new terminal. The workers were being offered redundancy of up to €32,500 if they agreed to move to the new terminal, but pay rates offered for the new jobs were up to €20,000 per year less than the old jobs.
The DAA also claimed that 400 new jobs created by the retail and catering outlets, however only seems to be a prediction.
“We are delighted to have been given the go ahead to operate Terminal Two and will continue to focus on putting the customer first and operating T2 as efficiently as possible,” said DAA chief executive Declan Collier in a statement.
The authority said the recruitment process is now underway and that details are available at www.daa.ie or by telephoning 01 8955715.
The airport also said it is looking for volunteers to test the new terminal, details of this can be found here.
