Ryanair directs employed in Ireland have announced they will strike on Friday 3 August unless their desires are met.
The members of the Irish Airline Pilots’ Association (IALPA) have advised that further strikes could take place unless Ryanair’s operation “changed tack and negotiated in good faith on the issue of base takes and related matters.”
IALPA tweeted today: “Ryanair members to afflict on 3 August. The company’s action today is reckless, unnecessary and designed to browbeat our members.”
Pilots’ union Fórsa said Ryanair’s decision to big problem letters of protective notice was a move to put pressure on employees, reported RTÉ Dispatch.
The letters were given to more than 300 members of standard.
