Ryanair Spanish cabin crew unions threaten 10 days of strikes2019|00:57
Ryanair faces yet more strike action. Unions for cabin crews in Spain announced plans on Wednesday (July 14) to hold ten days of strikes in September. They'll go ahead unless the Irish airline changes plans to close several bases in the country. Ryanair staff unions in Britain, Ireland and Portugal have already announced plans to strike in the coming weeks over pay and conditions. Ryanair pilots in Spain also due to vote on possible industrial action. The low-cost carrier stopped a series of disputes last year by reaching recognition agreements with a number of unions in Europe, and deals on pay and conditions with some. But management upset staff two weeks ago by informing them it had 900 more pilots and crew than needed due to delays in delivery of the grounded Boeing 737 MAX. Ryanair did not immediately respond when asked to comment on the Spanish strikes.
