Ryanair pilots suspend planned pre-Christmas strike

Ryanair pilots suspend planned pre-Christmas strike

Ryanair has taken a "great step change" with its decision to recognize pilots' unions, but is not prepared to go further and also recognize flight assistants' unions, a top executive said in a Saturday interview.

The Irish union responded on Sunday that it would be "happy to do that".

Michael O'Leary's troubled airline has offered to meet Impact representatives on Tuesday ahead of the scheduled pilots action.

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

In a statement IMPACT said it is available to meet with management today or anytime over the weekend.

Trade union IMPACT released a statement this evening declaring the suspension of the strike action.

Mo Wilkerson not traveling with Jets due to tardiness
Wilkerson hasn't been a bad player, but he hasn't been worth that contract and he might not be worth the trouble anymore. Since signing a five-year, $86 million contract in July 2016, he has produced only eight sacks in 28 games.

"It has invited each of them to talks to recognise these unions and the representative bodies for pilots in Ryanair in each of these countries", said Mr Byrne.

Pilots in Ireland, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Italy all threatened strike action during the busy Christmas period over union recognition.

"Putting the needs of our customers first, and avoiding disruption to their Christmas flights, is the reason why we will now deal with our pilots through recognised national union structures and we hope and expect that these structures can and will be agreed with our pilots early in the New Year".

Ryanair pilots have suspended a pre-Christmas one-day strike, union bosses have announced.

'Recognising unions will be a significant change for Ryanair, but we have delivered radical change before'.

"Union meetings planned next week and January".
