CABIN CREW unions, USO and SITCPLA, confirmed last night that the latest meeting discussing an ongoing contract dispute with Ryanair representatives finished “again without agreement”.
In a press release, cabin crew union USO announced: “Ryanair has once again despised its crew, setting limits and obstacles to negotiation.”
Cabin crew union SITCPLA has called the budget airline’s stance as “nonsense” and have criticised the company’s decision “to reach an agreement with the pilots, and not with the cabin crew.”
The cabin crew unions have called upon Spain’s Minister of Labour, Magdalena Valerio, to “no longer consent to the challenging attitude with which Ryanair comes to each mediation”.
They added that “Minister Valerio must regain control and put an end to this serious and growing conflict. ”
The union forewarned that industrial action may be used in the coming months: “the call for a strike at Christmas is getting closer.”
