Ryanair Faces Europe-Wide Strike Threat as Pilots Push for Union

Ryanair Faces Europe-Wide Strike Threat as Pilots Push for Union

"However, he stresses: ".we will NOT be dealing with Aer Lingus pilots or their union no matter how much or how long any such IALPA led action will occur".

Ryanair pilots can be members of unions, but the airline does not recognise them when it comes to negotiating pay and conditions.

In today's letter to Dublin-based pilots, Ryanair's Chief People Officer Eddie Wilson warned that if they support this "IALPA organised industrial action", the company will assume that the pilots no longer wish to deal directly with the airline through the current Employee Representative Committee system at individual bases (which has been criticised by the pilots).

Fighting talk from the airline.

The Italian pilots' union, Anpac, which claims to represent 280 of Ryanair's approximately 4,000 pilots, said on Wednesday its members would not work between 2pm and 6pm on 15 December.

Portugal's SPAC trade union this week announced that its members, which it says include a majority of Ryanair pilots based in the country, had voted to give it a mandate to call for industrial action up to and including a full strike.

The strike is to take place from 14.00 GMT to 18.00 GMT on that day, a spokesman for the union said. Ryanair company councils have recently been established under Ialpa's umbrella, and under the auspices of a number of other European aviation unions.

This means the Dublin base will - until further notice - be frozen with no promotions for FOs (first officers) or SOs (second officers) or no transfers facilitated out of base.

The notice of strike action from Anpac comes as Ryanair pilots around Europe step up action in an effort to force the carrier to engage in collective bargaining across its nearly 90 bases.

In addition, the 5/4 roster, the recent €10,000 base allowance and other annual allowances will cease immediately. The union also added that it could not specify how many of its pilots were scheduled to fly out of Italian airport between the said hours. A spokesman said it did not believe the Italian pilots would actually strike.

The union now has 280 members, but ANPAC said it is not clear how many of its pilots would take part.

In his letter to Dublin pilots, Wilson states they could avail of pay increases if they follow the ERC process.

A spokesperson for Ryanair said she does not expect the walkout to go ahead.
