German union calls for Friday Ryanair strike

Ryanair writes to IMPACT setting out details of union recognition

"If the best way to achieve this is to talk to our pilots through a recognised union process, then we are prepared to do so, and we have written today to these unions inviting them to talks to recognise them and calling on them to cancel the threatened industrial action planned for Christmas week", he said. "We tried to see what could still be negotiated but it wasn't much".

The Ryanair pilots in Germany said they had wanted to join their counterparts in Ireland, Italy as well as Portugal and mount a strike on Wednesday.

In a statement Ryanair said: "Ryanair has written today to the VC union on a number of outstanding issues arising from the meeting in Dublin yesterday (20 Dec), and has agreed to meet them again in Frankfurt on 5th January to progress and resolve these issues which Ryanair expects will lead to a Collective Labour Agreement (CLA) for Ryanair's pilots in Germany".

All 16 flights planned by the company in German airports from 5am-9am will be affected. "We will be doing our utmost to minimise any disruptions to the Christmas travel plans of our German customers".

"This has shown us that nothing has changed with Ryanair's management style or how it handles workers' rights", VC President Ilja Schulz told reporters, sitting behind a table bearing the slogan "No landing clearance for Irish social dumping".

Ryanair met with pilots and union reps on Tuesday in a massive U-turn on its long-standing policy.

"We see the breakdown of talks before they had even started as further evidence that Ryanair needs to build the organizational infrastructure, capability and mindset to deal with union negotiations that can not be broken by ultimatums", they wrote in a note.

The union accused the airline's management of disregarding the principles of trade union autonomy and claimed it is not committed to constructive talks. Passengers should consult the Ryanair.com website for the latest updates, it said.

It went on: "Ryanair has also submitted a set of proposals on pay and conditions, procedures and dispute resolution for its Irish based pilots, and looks forward to concluding an early agreement on these issues with its Irish Ryanair pilot company council".

"It's just a short strike and we don't want to burden passengers too much ahead of Christmas", the VC's Schulz said.

Ryanair pilots in Ireland represented by the Irish Air Line Pilots' Association (IALPA) and IMPACT will not take industrial action against the airline after confirmation of a "historic agreement" on Thursday afternoon.
