The Ryanair cabin crew unions in Spain, USO and Sitcpla, do not give up after the 18 days of strikes called this summer. After consulting the workers, they have called a new strike at the airline. From next August 8 and until January 7, 2023both included, there will be strikes of 24 hours, from Monday to Thursday, weekly.
“Given that Ryanair has not shown the slightest attempt to approach the unions but, on the contrary, has publicly stated its refusal to enter into any dialogue with the representatives chosen by its crew, USO and Sitcpla have been forced to continue with the strike and convene new days, listening to the workers”, they detail in a joint statement.
Negative that Elena Cabrera, Country Manager in Spain and Portugal of Ryanair, showed a few days ago in an interview with EL ESPAÑOL-Invertia.
The demands of this new strike call at Ryanair respond to three main reasons. First, the application of the statutory minimums of Spanish legislation in labor and trade union matters to all the cabin crew who provide their services on Ryanair aircraft and in the ten Spanish bases.
This translates, according to the unions, into the application of basic labor rights, which cannot be subject to negotiation, such as 22 working days of annual vacation, 14 legally established holidays, compliance with the PRL law and granting of rights. of legal custody, specification and reduction of working hours.
They also add the payment of salary levels prior to the pandemic, an end to the hiring of workers through illegal assignment of workers and respect for the legitimate exercise of the right to strike by workers.
In second place, the immediate reinstatement of the 11 dismissed workers during the previous calls in June and July for supporting the constitutional right to strike.
And, thirdly, the paralysis and filing of all open sanctioning files approximately 100 workers due to the previous stoppages.
These stoppages have been announced this Wednesday coinciding with a day of strike that at 9:00 in the morning leaves nine canceled flights (six of them with origin or destination in Barcelona-El Prat) and 42 delays.
