Ryanair pilots in Portugal suspend strike, union to negotiate

Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary

There were mixed reactions from pilots' groups after Ryanair's recognition of the union.

Ryanair has offered to meet with IMPACT on Tuesday, and has called on the unions to call off threatened action next week.

On Friday, Ryanair agreed to recognise unions for the first time ever, but unions wanted talks to ensure the details of the agreement.

It will bring certainty to Ryanair passengers travel plans over the Christmas period.

Ryanair has offered to meet union representatives on Tuesday, having earlier proposed a meeting on Wednesday, the day of the planned strike.

The Impact trade union is looking for further reassurances from the airline before calling off its planned walkout on Wednesday.

IMPACT said yesterday that the work stoppage would go ahead unless Ryanair management arranged a meeting before it to discuss the issue.

"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.

Niall Shanahan, a spokesman for Impact, a union to which IALPA is affiliated, said: "We indicated to Ryanair that we were happy to meet them on Wednesday, but we would not be in a position to consider suspending the scheduled industrial action until we met them".

"Recognising unions will be a significant change for Ryanair, but we have delivered radical change before, most recently when we launched Ryanair Labs and our highly successful Always Getting Better customer improvement programme in 2013".

The Dublin-based airline said Friday it would recognise the unions "as long as they establish committees of Ryanair pilots... as Ryanair will not engage with pilots who fly for competitor airlines".
