First Ryanair AGM Since Recognition Of Unions Taking Place Today


Share this article


Ryanair's Annual General Meeting takes place in County Meath this morning.

Today's event is the first AGM since the airline's decision to formally recognise unions for the first time.

Michael O'Leary is expected to remain at the helm of the company, despite calls from some pilot unions and shareholders to oust him.

However, some lively exchanges are expected at today's meeting.

Shareholders are also voting on re-electing directors including the company's long-time chairman David Bonderman.

It comes as the airline faces one of the biggest strikes in its history next week.

Unions representing cabin crews in Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain are staging a 24-hour walk-out on Friday week over contracts.

Ryanair has faced several months of industrial action - including the now resolved dispute between the company and its Dublin-based pilots, which led to dozens of flight cancellations this summer.
