Capt Evan Cullen, president of the Irish Air Line Pilots’ Association

Yesterday.

Capt Evan Cullen, president of the Irish Air Line Pilots’ Association, appeared before the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Employment Affairs and Social Protection to discuss bogus self employment.

Further to this…

Tim O’Brien, in The Irish Times, reports:

Some women pilots [working as self-employed contractors] in Irish-registered airlines are being told they have a choice: terminate their pregnancy or terminate their employment, the president of the Irish Air Line Pilots’ Association (IALPA) has claimed.

…Capt Cullen told the Committee on Employment Affairs and Social Protection that many pilots were afraid to speak up.

He said women pilots were being told not to get pregnant, and that women pilots who present as pregnant were told: “you have a choice, you terminate your employment or you terminate your pregnancy”.

Women pilots told ‘terminate your pregnancy or employment’ (Tim O’Brien, The Irish Times)
