Ryanair's German pilots to strike on Friday

Ryanair pilots in Germany have said they will go on strike for four hours on Friday, following "Unsatisfactory negotiations" over union recognition. The strike by the Vereinigung Cockpit union will be the first industrial action by Ryanair pilots in Germany. "The airline said that at Wednesday's meeting, the union"confirmed that the Ryanair Pilots Council had not been elected by Ryanair's pilots, and contained one former contract pilot who had not flown for Ryanair for 15 months, who is currently in litigation with Ryanair in Germany. "Ryanair explained that it was happy to negotiate with its German pilots and the VC officials but it would not enter into negotiations with non-Ryanair pilots, or a non-Ryanair pilot who is in litigation with Ryanair." The carrier said it would recognise unions as the representative body for pilots in Ryanair "As long as they establish committees of Ryanair pilots to deal with Ryanair issues, as Ryanair will not engage with pilots who fly for competitor airlines in Ireland or elsewhere".
