Madrid (dpa) – The start of a strike by low-cost airline Ryanair’s cabin crew, which had been planned for months, has slightly disrupted air travel in Spain. The USO union said 10 flights were canceled on Monday following the strike.
Also, 111 late in the afternoon. The Irish airline said the strike would cause “if any disruption” to operations over the next few months.
Spain-based Ryanair’s cabin crew are demanding better working conditions. After the first work stoppages in June and July failed, responsible unions USO and Tsitsipla announced at the end of July that they would strike every week from Monday to Thursday between August 8 and January 7, 2023. The report says that Ryanair does not comply with Spanish laws and refuses to negotiate.
Those are the requirements
It calls for compliance with “basic labor rights,” including at least 22 working days of annual leave, implementation of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, and an increase in wages to pre-pandemic levels.
Madrid, Barcelona, Mallorca, Málaga, Seville, Alicante, Valencia, Girona, Ibiza and Santiago de Compostela have also been affected by the Ryanair strikes. Due to the maintenance of “minimum services” required by Spanish legislation during the strike, only a relatively small number of flights will be cancelled. At Palma airport on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca, only one flight to and from Hamburg was canceled on Monday, especially for German holidaymakers.
