Ryanair's Italy staff threaten December strike

Pilots and flight attendants plan to strike for four hours from 1 p.m. local time on December 15, the Anpac union said in a letter to the airline, adding that they're campaigning for the right to negotiate collective labor agreements, as well as on issues including social security, health care and vacation planning.

The main demand is the right for collective bargaining outside the framework of Ryanair's own employee representative committees. Ryanair negotiates pay and conditions on an individual basis with each of its bases. Ryanair company councils have recently been established under Ialpa's umbrella, and under the auspices of a number of other European aviation unions.

Responding to the decision in Portugal, the Irish Air Line Pilots" Association (IALPA) said its members were "currently examining their options'.

"We may in due course be forced to look at re-basing some Dublin aircraft to lower-cost airports elsewhere, where our pilots continue to deal directly with us", he said.

"As this is a developing Ryanair pilot trade dispute in another jurisdiction, IALPA are not now in a position for further comment".

Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary.

"No more whipsawing. One pilot voice, one negotiating team now". We, the pilots of Ryanair, are not short-term, expendable commodities. "Treat us accordingly", the video said.

"This is the sixth time FIT/CISL [other unions] or ANPAC has announced strikes by Ryanair pilots, only to postpone/cancel them later", she added.

Ryanair said it was ignoring the strike threats.

"If Dublin pilots support this IALPA organised action then we intend to meet this head on", Wilson told pilots in a letter on Wednesday.

Portugal's SPAC trade union this week announced that its members, which it says include a majority of Ryanair pilots based in the country, had voted to give it a mandate to call for industrial action up to and including a full strike. "We expect this latest threatened strike will also be postponed/cancelled since FIT/CSIL/ANPAC is an Alitalia union with no role in Ryanair", the spokesman said.
