Ryanair pilots in Ireland to strike Thursday 12 July

04 Juillet, 2018, 15:23 | Auteur: Auguste Feret

The union announced today [July 3] that 99 per cent of their members had backed the industrial action in a ballot - and warned that there could be further action.

Despite the strike action, Ryanair said it still flew 7% more passengers last month, at 12.6 million.

Hours after Ryanair published the June results, pilots for the airline voted in favour of a one-day strike next week over management's approach to transferring them between bases, meaning thousands more holidaymakers could face disruptions.

After the breakdown of negotiations between the management of low-priced airline Ryanair and representatives of cabin crew staff in Spain, Portugal, Belgium and Italy, it now seems nearly inevitable that flights will be disrupted by strikes during the summer, jeopardizing the travel plans of millions of passengers across Europe.

Some 120 union members, majority captains, are directly employed by Ryanair and able to strike, a spokesman for the union said. In the meantime, we had again this morning (prior to this strike notice) invited FORSA to meet to resolve these issues at our Airside offices at 10am next Wednesday morning and we hope FORSA will take up this 19th invitation to meet.

Chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs said: "Regrettably, over 210,000 Ryanair customers had their flights cancelled in June because of four weekends of ATC (air traffic control) strikes and repeated UK, German and French ATC staff shortages".

IALPA claims that management has not accepted the directly-employed pilots' demand to set up a seniority list to determine how these selections are made.

In earlier correspondence with Ryanair management, the union said that their request for talks on the issue had not been taken seriously and that they were met with a threat to move Dublin-based aircraft and pilots to other airports and cut promotion opportunities.

The union said its members felt there was no transparent system to address matters such as transfers between the airline's European and African bases, which can have a "devastating effect on family life".

Ryanair has said it is disappointed by the strike notice, which it described as unnecessary.

The Irish Travel Agents Association (ITAA) expressed their concern at news of next week's strike.
