Ryanair Union Recognition Averts Pilot Strikes

Ryanair Union Recognition Averts Pilot Strikes

A statement from the budget carrier said: "As Ryanair's statement of Friday December 15 made clear, Ryanair is moving to recognise unions, starting this week with meetings with Irish, German and Portuguese pilot unions".

In a statement issued last night, Impact said it has agreed to meet Ryanair management tomorrow evening, but stressed that it is available to meet sooner.

"This is disappointing given all that's been said in the media over the last five days".

The Dublin-based carrier met union representatives in Dublin on Tuesday, after Chief Executive Officer Michael O'Leary reached out to Ryanair's fledgling pilot organizations last week in a softening of a longstanding anti-union stance as the company's first-ever strikes loomed.

He said the unions also reminded management they could reactive their intent to strike in the absence of a "timely agreement".

The news came ahead of Ryanair's meeting later in the day with Impact, the union representing Irish pilots.

The Caller reported that a spokesperson for the network said the payment was significantly less than $40,000. The Daily Caller reported that the payment was in the amount of $40,000.

The airline is due to meet a pilots' union for the first time in its 32-year history on Tuesday.

It also confirmed it will recognise cabin crew unions.

Ryanair pilots chose to call off the industrial action after the airline caved in to demands and agreed to recognized unions, a decision that totally contravened their previous 32 year-long stance on unionship. The airline has already seen significant disruption to its services this year, after issues with pilot scheduling and cabin crew revolts saw thousands of flights cancelled.

One of the conditions for the pilot talks is that the union should establish a committee of Ryanair pilots, as the airline will not speak with pilots who fly for competitor airlines.

The analyst foresees Ryanair struggling to maintain their rapid growth in the wake of recognising the union, which he says could halt further growth.
