More Job Cuts Ahead for Iberia

The Willie Walsh hatchet is about the slice through staff numbers again,  this time the IAG boss is hoping to shed over one and half thousand from the Spanish arm Iberia.

Walsh famous for his antagonistic attitude towards staff relations authorised the International Consolidated Airlines Group to release the news last week. The troubled once proud Spanish airline, Iberia has already began a consultation period to cut 1,581 staff. The consultation period is just a legal formality the company has to go through before laying off the staff. Although of course, the company in public still state they are 'in negotiations' with the unions and job cuts were only one option, we understand the decision has already been made - and budgeted for.
