The Irish airline is trying to get a Spanish court to put an end to the strike, which they say is illegal. The group of baggage handlers apparently walked out at the end of May, citing low pay and poor working conditions as the reason for striking. Originally, members from four different unions went on strike, but although members of three of these unions have returned to work, those from one union, CTA, have not done so.
In spite of the strike, Ryanair sources said that although a few baggage handlers are continuing their industrial action, its flights and baggage handling services in Madrid have not been affected.
