Ryanair cabin crew warn that more strikes will take place if demands are not met

  • The cabin crews' complaints include the airline's use of Irish legislation

The USO and Sitcpla trade unions, together with representatives from Portugal, Italy, Holland, Belgium and Germany, have said that Ryanair cabin crews are considering calling further strikes before Christmas. First the trade unions will meet with representatives of the European Commission on 18 October in Brussels to discuss the conflict.

"During this meeting, we hope that the European Commission will begin some sort of action to force Ryanair to immediately apply national legislation to its workers," explained Antonio Escobar, who is responsible for foreign relations at Sitcpla.

The cabin crews' complaints include the airline's use of Irish legislation to fix their working conditions rather than the law of the countries in which they are based.
