UNIONS representing Ryanair cabin crew in Spain have cancelled a 24-hour strike planned for today, but warned they will go ahead with other work stoppages on Thursday and Sunday.

USO and Sitcpla unions, representing around 1,800 staff, initially called the industrial action after the airline ‘failed to reach an agreement’ during mediation on improving work and pay conditions.

They are demanding local contracts under local law, as opposed to the Irish contracts widely used by the firm.

But yesterday afternoon, the first of three strikes was called off after talks with Ryanair representatives in Madrid, in order ‘to give more opportunity for the negotiations to keep going’.
