A union accuses the company of bringing in workers from abroad to operate its planes.

Ryanair cabin crew on Thursday concluded a new period of their strike that began at the start of the summer, canceling a dozen flights in four days, with less impact following retaliation by the company according to unions.

Figures provided by the unions show that 215 flights were canceled between June 25 and July 2 (25, 26, 30, 1, 2) when the strike began.

There were no flight cancellations on Thursday, and only around 10 cancellations were recorded since Monday, despite 300 flight delays. For the unions, if these obstacles are due to their social mobility, the company attributes them to other factors.

“Professional Slavery”

“All the delays and cancellations recorded by the company are not due to the strike, but due to problems with controllers across Europe,” Ryanair spokeswoman Elena Cabrera said in a video released on Twitter. “Too little”.

The strike is so widely followed that Lidia Arrasans, general secretary of the Union Syndicale Ouvrier (USO), one of the unions that called for the movement, rejected it. “.

The trade unionist explained that these dismissals would have legal consequences because they deny the right to strike, accusing Ryanair of “professional slavery”.

and EasyJet

The USO also accuses the company of bringing in workers from overseas to operate its planes.

The strike at Ryanair, in the middle of the tourist season, is in addition to a strike by pilots of another low-cost carrier, easyJet, which reopens this weekend, and a social movement by cabin crew of Iberia Express – Lo. Spanish company Iberia’s cost subsidiary will go on strike from August 28 to September 6.
