Ryanair moves towards recognising pilot unions

Ryanair moves towards recognising pilot unions
From BBC - December 15, 2017

Ryanair has said it is prepared to recognise pilot unions as it seeks to avoid strike disruption over the Christmas period.

Earlier this week, 79 Dublin-based Ryanair pilots had said they would strike for one day on 20 December.

The airline was also facing action by pilots in Italy, Germany and Portugal.

Ryanair has never recognised unions, but it said it would change this policy in order to avoid disruption to flights and passengers in Christmas week.

It has written to pilot unions in Ireland, the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain and Portugal inviting them for talks.

Impact, the Irish pilots' union, said it had received Ryanair's letter on Friday morning. It added it was considering the contents and would respond to the company before making a public statement.
