Social conflicts at Ryanair: Belgium-based pilots to strike on June 24, 25 and 26

Social conflicts at Ryanair: Belgium-based pilots to strike on June 24, 25 and 26

The Christian Union CNE announced on Sunday that Belgium-based Ryanair pilots have decided to join the cabin crew strike on Friday, June 24, Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26. Workers at the Irish Low-Cost Company demand that Belgian labor law be respected and that the minimum wage be guaranteed to all. Belgium-based Ryanair cabin crew announced a three-day strike last Friday following the failure of negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement.

Flemish Christian unions ACV Puls and the French-speaking CNE say negotiations have stalled for weeks as the carrier’s instructions do not comply with Belgian labor law. Both organizations condemn the lack of a Belgium-based HR department and are familiar with the applicable social legislation there, which will avoid many errors in pay slips.

With this strike in Belgium, the European action raised by the unions in mid-May is taking shape. In Spain, the cabin crew intends to stop work on June 24, 25, 26 and June 30, July 1 and 2. A Portuguese trade union has also called on Ryan Air workers to go on a three-day strike from June 24 to 26 to protest the deteriorating working conditions of workers. Italy will join the movement on Saturday, June 25, after several flights were canceled following a two-day strike last week, and France on June 25 and 26.

The last strike in April saw the cancellation of about 300 flights at Savantam (Brussels Airport) and Charleroi (BSCA) airports.
