The national strike, called on June 24, 25, 26, 30 and July 1 and 2, calls for the suspension of all Spanish flight attendants, the two unions said in a joint statement. Independent Union of Airline Crew (SITCPLA).
The goal is to “force Ryanair” to exercise “fundamental labor rights” and “reach an agreement” to ensure “decent working conditions for all employees”, the two unions added.
Ryanair, the only international company in Spain that does not have a collective bargaining agreement, began negotiations eight months ago about the flight crew’s working conditions in the country, according to unions. Following an agreement reached with the CCOO (Workers’ Commission), a minority union of flight attendants, the low-cost company negotiated, especially to guarantee several hours of flight and the minimum wage.
But the terms of the agreement are considered inadequate by the USO and the SITCPLA, which ensures that the Irish company does not “apply Spanish labor law” in the country.
