12/12 Ryanair pilots in Germany call strike in dispute over wages

Edited by walterp on . Posted in News In Brief

The pilots’ union Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) announced on Tuesday that pilots on Ryanair would take part in the first industrial action in the budget airline’s history. The announcement comes after pilot’s unions in Portugal and Italy had also called their members to strike against the Irish company. VC did not name dates for the strikes in order to make it harder for Ryanair to prepare contingency plans. The aim of the strikes is to improve the salaries of pilots who fly Ryanair planes, VC said, adding that it wants its Ryanair members to earn as much as the salaries offered by Tuifly, a budget competitor to Ryanair.
