Ryan air pilots-labor dispute

Tue Dec 12, 2017 7:11 pm

Forgive the question if it already in discussion elsewhere on the forum.

I have been reading about the Ryan Air Pilot bases who did not negotiate and come to terms with Management and their vote for industrial action.

I was wondering what the aviation communities perspective on the situation was?

I read articles on both sides of the argument- I'm just curious as to what A net has to say about the situation?

Does Air Lingues really have something to do with it?

If the unions inciting this succeed I can guarantee that Ireland will be shut off from civilisation every Christmas as that is when they'll call out the pilots to the picket line.
Ireland, an Island will be at the mercy of the Union.

If they achieve their aims then Aer Lingus and Ryanair pilots will have similar terms and once their terms are similar they'll push forward together to push for more money and even better conditions.

The common understanding is power counts for nothing if you don't exercise it.

Given Ryanair pilots are leaving in droves, get rubbish pay, have to pay for the uniforms etc etc it doesnt surprise me that they are going on strike. It surprises me how long its taken for them to get to this point.

Its not just Ireland that is looking at strikes it is also Italy and Germany amongst others who are also looking at strike action.
