Ryanair nominates mediator to break deadlock with striking Irish pilots

Ryanair flights cancelled strike full list

The fourth one is due to come on Friday which has forced Ryanair to cancel 20 flights affecting a total of 3,500 customers.

Ryanair cancelled 24 of around 2,300 daily flights after a second one-day strike by Irish pilots.

Forsa announced the news earlier today after little progress had been made between trade unions and the airline.

On Thursday, pilots warned there would be a fifth day of strikes on August 10, when the airline's Belgian and Swedish pilots will also be on strike.

She said she has experienced reporting she does not consider accurate but said she did not agree with the description. We do not have a border crisis; the zero-tolerance policy was created to punish migrants and to excite Trump's base.


RYANAIR has confirmed that 100 of its Dublin-based pilots will strike for a fifth day on Friday, August 10 - the same day as their colleagues in Sweden and Belgium. "FORSA should now explain why another 3,500 Irish customers will have their flights and holidays next Friday 10 Aug disrupted when FORSA have refused not one, but two invitations to meet with Ryanair to resolve this dispute".

German Ryanair pilots have also voted to strike but are yet to announce the date.

Ryanair's summer of strike chaos is set to continue next week as yet more Europe-wide action was announced yesterday.

The recent strikes launched by Ryanair's pilots in Ireland first started on July 12 after they lost their patience with their employer over the talks on the improvement of their working conditions which mainly centered around a demand for base transfer, annual leave and promotions based on seniority.

"This is part and parcel of life in aviation when you recognise unions", Ryanair Chief Marketing Officer Kenny Jacobs told Ireland's Newstalk radio station, pointing to years of wrangling over pay and conditions at rival Lufthansa.

Staff from the Netherlands and Germany may join them.

The latest action comes as the airline has been hit with a series of pilot and cabin crew strikes over the last weeks.

"Forsa has today repeated to the company that it is willing to explore this option".
