Labour Youth has today called on Ryanair to listen to its workers and act appropriately following pilots’ overwhelming vote for industrial action.
Speaking on the matter, Chairperson Chloe Manahan has said “Ryanair must now make good on its commitment to engage with trade unions to improve working conditions in order to protect both workers and customers.
“At this time of year, many people are looking forward to spending their hard earned cash on a holiday abroad. We remember the chaos that ensued last year, when workers were forced to take strike action and now, with strike action looming yet again, management must honour its obligations to both workers and customers to address pilots’ very reasonable concerns.
“What Ryanair pilots are asking for is commonplace is neither unreasonable nor uncommon. Talk is cheap but now Ryanair must, not only recognise unions, but engage with workers to come to a suitable agreement to resolve issues that have been ongoing for years. ”
