Ryanair's cabin staff are starting the year, as announced, with strike action. Stoppages begin today and are expected to continue on the 10th and 13th January. The employees demand that their employment contracts and conditions be adapted to Spanish law. So far, Europe's largest low-cost airline has refused to comply. The good news is that flights to and from the Canary Islands are not affected by this strike.
In July and September last year there were Europe-wide strikes, which led to the company reducing last year's profit forecasts by 12 per cent. In countries such as Germany, Greece, France, Italy and Sweden, an agreement was reached in late summer last year. The same applies to the Spanish pilots' union.
