RYANAIR’S cabin crew have called for three days of strike action in January.
The Sitcpla and USO unions announced that they will strike on the 8th, 10th and 13th, after a meeting held this morning (Friday December 28) at the Interconfederal Mediation and Arbitration Service (SIMA) failed to avert industrial action.
In a joint statement, the unions said that cabin crew from all bases in Spain will be called out on strike. They say that about 1,800 staff in Spain are calling for better pay and conditions and claim all they want is for the airline to “comply with Spanish legislation.”
The unions pointed out that the airline still has 10 days to rethink and avoid this new protest.
In September the last major strike by Ryanair staff saw more than 190 flights were cancelled. At the time Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said: “We sincerely apologise to those customers affected by these unnecessary strikes, which we have done our utmost to avoid, given that we have already offered these unions recognition agreements, Collective Labour Agreements, and a move to local contracts/law in 2019.”
