Dublin-Based Ryanair Pilots Striking For Fourth Time Today


Share this article


Around 100 of Ryanair’s Dublin-based pilots are striking again today as industrial relations disputes escalate within the airline.

20 flights have been cancelled – affecting the travel plans of 3,500 passengers.

This is the fourth day of strike action by around 100 Irish based Ryanair pilots in a row over seniority, base transfers and annual leave.

The Fórsa union has announced pilots here will also walk off the job again next Friday, August 10th.

Ryanair has described the move as irresponsible, unwarranted and disruptive.

However Fórsa says the airline’s threat last week to sack 300 pilots and cabin crew or transfer them to Poland has led to a hardening of resolve among its members.

The union said: "There cannot be a resolution to this dispute if management persists with its precondition to talks, which is virtually unprecedented in similar situations across Irish industrial relations."

Next Friday's picket will coincide with a strike by pilots in Sweden and Belgium.

Their colleagues in Germany and Holland have also backed industrial action, but have yet to say when it will happen.
