Ryanair Union Recognition Averts Pilot Strikes

The IMPACT statement in full read: "While Ryanair management said they recognised IMPACT/IALPA for collective bargaining purposes at this evening's meeting (19th December), they said they were unable to give the union a piece of paper to confirm this".

The analyst foresees Ryanair struggling to maintain their rapid growth in the wake of recognising the union, which he says could halt further growth.

He said the union put forward a pilot framework proposal to fast track negotiations and that the airline was happy for the union to have taken an approach to deal with the issues quickly.

"This is disappointing given all that's been said in the media over the last five days".

Speaking after the talks, Ryanair's Chief People Officer Eddie Wilson said he is pleased with how they went.

It forced the budget airline to recognise a pilots' union and brought about talks with IMPACT union scheduled for later today. "It will lead on in the New Year to meetings with other EU pilot unions and cabin crew unions in due course as well".

'Christmas flights are very important to our customers and we wish to remove any worry or concern that they may be disrupted by pilot industrial action next week, ' said Michael O'Leary previously.

"He has said in the past that hell would freeze over before he would recognise unions".

"Ryanair now calls on these pilot unions to call off the threatened industrial action on Wednesday 20 Dec next so that our customers can look forward to travelling home for Christmas without the threat or worry of pilot strikes hanging over them". The union called on Ryanair to talk to flight attendants' representatives too.

The threatened pilot strike follows on from the travel chaos caused by holiday scheduling issues that the airline suffered from in September, which affected over 700,000 passengers at a cost of €25 million.

However IMPACT, the union involved, has already warned that the strike is suspended rather than cancelled.

Last Friday Ryanair surprised customers and staff when it agreed to recognise unions for the first time in its 32 year history.

Today, Ryanair will meet with a workers union in a move that is historic for the company.
