Pilots strike over northern mistreatment

I see Aer Lingus pilots are set to strike over plans to pay colleagues based in the North less money than those in the Republic of Ireland.

Almost 500 pilots are to stage a strike next Tuesday and Wednesday.

The pilots' union said it would not allow Belfast based pilots to be treated as "second class citizens", according to Irish state broadcaster RTE.

I guess this dispels the oft-mentioned theory from unionists that in a united Ireland the south of Ireland wouldn't give a toss about the north!

Fair play to the pilots. I wish them well.
