RYANAIR TO MEET WITH CABIN CREW UNIONS

RYANAIR TO MEET WITH CABIN CREW UNIONS

RYANAIR WILL MOVE ON TO MEETINGS WITH CABIN CREW UNIONS "IN DUE COURSE," FOLLOWING ITS SURPRISE SHIFT TO TALK WITH PILOT UNIONS.

 

Ryanair last week said it would recognise trade unions for the first time, a move that averted the first pilot strike in the company's history, but which sent its share price lower.

 

The carrier has agreed to first meetings with pilot unions from Ireland, Portugal and Germany this week.

 

"It will lead on in the New Year to meetings with other EU pilot unions and cabin crew unions in due course as well," Ryanair said in an emailed statement.

 

Earlier, German cabin crew union UFO said it had asked Ryanair for negotiations on pay and conditions in October, but the carrier refused.

 

"Workers' rights should not stop at the cockpit door," Nicoley Baublies, UFO board member for pay policy said in a statement on Tuesday, adding cabin crew would also consider industrial action if Ryanair did not negotiate with them too.
