Flying Home For Christmas? Update On Planned Ryanair Strike

18 December, 2017, 01:09 | Author: Barbara Daniel
  • The chief executive of Ryanair said that the airline would recognise unions in order to avoid Christmas strikes

On Friday, the Irish carrier announced for the first time in its 32 year history that it would recognise unions.

Impact said it called off the strike action because Ryanair had agreed to recognise the union as the representative of its Irish-based pilots.

Ryanair staff have planned strike action on December 20.

Speaking to the Sunday Independent, a senior union source insisted the get-together between both sides would have to be before the Wednesday deadline.

IMPACT responded, saying the strike would go ahead unless management agreed to talks before that, to allow them to ensure there was substance in the offer and to understand how the airlines' recognition of unions would proceed.

Ryanair made the landmark change in its policy after unionised pilots in Ireland, Portugal, Germany, Italy, and Spain all voted for industrial action in recent weeks.

Mr Harbor said IMPACT had spoken to senior Ryanair management, telling them they were ready to meet them at any time.

An upcoming Ryanair pilot strike has been suspended after the airline agreed to talks - much to the relief of those flying overseas for Christmas.

Confirmation that the meeting with Impact will now take place Tuesday in advance of the Wednesday deadline was confirmed by Ryanair on Saturday.

So the ball was back in Ryanair's court, and they released a statement offering to meet on Tuesday. "If the best way to achieve this is to talk to our pilots through a recognized union process, then we are prepared to do so, and we have written today to these unions inviting them to talks to recognize them and calling on them to cancel the threatened industrial action planned for Christmas week".
