Ryanair to meet Irish pilots' union in bid to halt strike

Ryanair and the Irish pilots' union look set to meet for talks next week in a bid to avert a pre-Christmas strike. Niall Shanahan, a spokesman for Impact, a union to which IALPA is affiliated, said: "We indicated to Ryanair that we were happy to meet them on Wednesday, but we would not be in a position to consider suspending the scheduled industrial action until we met them." Ryanair said on Saturday that it would meet the German pilots' union for talks on Wednesday. The Dublin-based airline announced on Friday that it would recognise the unions "As long as they establish committees of Ryanair pilots... as Ryanair will not engage with pilots who fly for competitor airlines". Friday's announcement led to Italian pilots' union Anpac and Portuguese union Spac calling off strike action due to take place next week.
