Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Pilot and cabin crew trade unions gather in Rome first week of September
"Portuguese newspaper Dinheiro Vivo picked up this information from Portuguese trade union SNPVAC. A list of demands will be drafted during this big meeting. "If Ryanair doesn't comply with these demands, the airline may face the biggest strike in its history," trade unions warned."
In an open letter, unions from Belgium, Italy, Portugal and Spain
Dear Ryanair Shareholders,
After months of frustrating talks, innocuous meetings and even strike actions in some countries, we fail to see a 'sincere and genuine' union integration process and the willing to engage in a negotiation with the workers' legitimate representatives in each country, instead of some hand-picked Unions [US-Eng., company union] , by convenience of the Ryanair management.

Quite the opposite, in fact.
What happened was a polarization of the parties' positions due to a continuous refusal from Ryanair representatives to follow the local regulations and refusal to respect the Unions role in their own countries.

Ryanair management continues to use bullying as a management tool, that punishes people for being sick, that sends intimidating letters to the people that exercised their right to strike, threatening to cut jobs in the countries affected and insisting on perpetuating a business model that we all consider to be obsolete.
We strongly believe that Ryanair is capable of adapting its business to the commercial and social reality of today's Europe, based on dignity, freedom, democracy, equality and the rule of law.

What we don't believe is that current management has the necessary trust from the employees nor the skill set [!] to perform these changes.
Yours sincerely,


o, SSSSSsssssssnap
