Ryanair threatened by fresh strikes in Germany
Ryanair has already cancelled hundreds of flights this month due to pilot strikes in Dublin and cabin crew walkouts in Italy, Spain, Portugal and Belgium. The Vereinigung Cockpit pilot union said discussions with Ryanair last Friday had failed to secure the progress it wanted. It wants collective bargaining agreements with Ryanair and conditions on a par with similar budget airlines such as TUI. Ingolf Schumacher, chairman of collective bargaining agreements at Vereinigung Cockpit, accused Ryanair of "Playing in the negotiations" which have been going on since January. News of the potential strikes in Germany came as Ryanair invited Irish pilot union Forsa to talks after last week's strikes and ahead of a potential fresh day of strikes on Friday 3 August. Ryanair agreed last year to recognise unions as official representatives for workers, but it has struggled to reach agreements with some of them.
