Pilots give notice of further strikes in Ryanair
Fórsa issued the following statement this evening:
“The Irish Airline Pilots’ Association (IALPA) branch of Fórsa today (Thursday) gave notice that it intends to stage two further one-day pilot strikes in Ryanair commencing at 1am on Friday 20th July, and at 1am on Tuesday 24th July.
“IALPA gave notice that it intends to stage two further one-day pilot strikes in Ryanair commencing at 1am on Friday 20th July, and at 1am on Tuesday 24th July.”
The union and management found some common ground in talks yesterday (Wednesday) on the proposal that a joint working group could help the parties agree on a fair and transparent method to govern base transfer arrangements and related matters, but failed to reach agreement on the terms of reference for such a group.
On a number of occasions in recent months, there have been suggestions that third-party facilitation could assist in reaching consensus on issues of disagreement.
It is, therefore, regrettable that Ryanair management has so far rejected the suggestion of third party assistance.”
