Ryanair Facing Strikes in Ireland, the UK, Spain and Portugal

Ryanair is facing flight crew strikes in Ireland, the UK, Spain and Portugal. Irish pilots who re members of IALPA voted by 94% in favour of strike action nd are to strike for 48 hours from midnight on 22 August. The union has served strike notice on the company and said that Ryanair pilots would notify the company of further strike days in due course.

Members of the British Airline Pilots’ Association plan to strike on 22 August and 2 September as they pursue a pay claim.

Cabin crew in Portugal plan a five-day stoppage beginning on 21 August in a dispute over various entitlements.

Flight attendants in Spain will strike in September after Ryanair announced plans to close two bases in the Canary Islands.

Ryanair’s main pilots’ union in Spain will vote soon on possible industrial action, including going on strike, in response to planned job cuts.

The mere threat of industrial  action will lead to  an immediate drop in passenger bookings in all of these markets.

Meanwhile, on the ISE Ryanair shares are trading at €9.00, having been at €12.84 earlier this year.
