Ryanair says it’s ready to embrace the collective bargaining model and work with trade unions.
Management is meeting with pilot union IALPA which has called off a strike planned for tomorrow.
The airline claims recognising the unions of pilots and cabin crew will cost them 100 million a year.
Autumn saw Ryanair cancel tens of thousands of flights, and now it says it’s prepared to negotiate with unions, for the first time in its 32 year history.
Pilots represented by IMPACT are meeting with management this evening, and Ryanair this afternoon said it would also meet with unions representing cabin crew in the new year.
