Ryanair Strike Remains On For Now

Ryanair Christmas strike suspended after airline agrees to talks

Trade union IMPACT released a statement this evening declaring the suspension of the strike action.

IMPACT says it's not in a position to call off Wednesday's planned strike action by Ryanair pilots until it meets with the company.

During a conference call with the pilots, Mr O'Leary is understood to have said that the offer of union recognition from Ryanair today is genuine.

However, IMPACT said it needs clarifications from Ryanair on how it will handle matters into the future.

The Portuguese pilots" strike scheduled for Wednesday was suspended by SPAC owing to Ryanair's decision to recognise the union "and its commitment to open negotiations with the aim of entering into a company agreement'.

RYANAIR will announce "contingency plans" for passengers facing a 24-hour strike in the run-up to Christmas tomorrow.

The Irish carrier offered to recognise unions for the first time on Friday after pilots in Ireland, Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain and Portugal threatened walkouts.

Speaking yesterday, CEO Michael O'Leary said the radical U-turn to recognise unions was a bid to avoid travel chaos for customers during Christmas week.

Ryanair has sought a meeting with the Irish Airline Pilots' Association on that day, according to The Independent.

"Ryanair has also offered to meet IMPACT/IALPA and their Ryanair pilot committee on Tuesday 19 December if that would suit them better", added the statement.

"Christmas flights are very important to our customers and we wish to remove any worry or concern that they may be disrupted by pilot industrial action next week", he said.
