Ryanair Pilots Announce Further Strikes For July


Share this article


Ryanair pilots based in Dublin have announced plans for two more strike days.

They have been taking part in their first day of industrial action since 1am this morning, in a dispute over issues such as seniority and base transfers.

Now they've confirmed they intend to hold two more 24-hour strikes on Friday 20th July and Tuesday 24th July.

The Irish Air Line Pilots' Association (IALPA) - a branch of the Fórsa union - said: "The union and management found some common ground in talks yesterday (Wednesday) on the proposal that a joint working group could help the parties agree on a fair and transparent method to govern base transfer arrangements and related matters, but failed to reach agreement on the terms of reference for such a group.

"On a number of occasions in recent months, there have been suggestions that third-party facilitation could assist in reaching consensus on issues of disagreement. It is, therefore, regrettable that Ryanair management has so far rejected the suggestion of third party assistance.”

Ryanair cancelled 30 flights between the UK and Ireland today as a result of the industrial action.

Earlier today, the airline claimed that today's strike by pilots 'achieved nothing'.
