Ryanair pilots in Italy set to go on strike

He said that Ryanair received a letter on behalf of the "Aer Lingus Pilot Union [referring to Ialpa], threatening industrial action by Ryanair Pilots in Ireland at Dublin, unless Ryanair recognises the Aer Lingus Pilots Union".

"This is the sixth time FIT/CISL [other unions] or ANPAC has announced strikes by Ryanair pilots, only to postpone/cancel them later", she added.

In a memo to captains and first officers in Dublin, the Irish airline said it would freeze promotions, cut cash allowances and move pilots to different bases if they supported industrial action during ballots being held this week.

Fighting talk from the airline.

Ryanair pilots and flight attendants in Italy are to go on a four-hour strike on December 15th, a union announced on Wednesday, a threat shrugged off by the Irish airline.

Ryanair Holdings Plc faces its first-ever strike as crews in Italy prepare to walk out as part of a push for unionization and company-wide contracts, and staff in six other countries also consider action.

"We expect this latest threatened strike will also be postponed [or] cancelled", the spokesman said.

It was most recently owned by a mathematics teacher, who was unable to salvage the building from decay . The Mothe-Chandeniers chateau in Les Trois-Moutiers, western France has been through some tough times.

The notice of strike action from Anpac comes as Ryanair pilots around Europe step up action in an effort to force the carrier to engage in collective bargaining across its nearly 90 bases.

Pilots at a number of bases - including Dublin, London Stansted and Madrid - have rejected proposals from management around pay and conditions. A spokesman said it did not believe the Italian pilots would actually strike.

Speaking earlier this week, the Irish pilots union, IALPA, said its members were considering following their counterparts in Italy and Portugal by backing industrial action.

In his letter to Dublin pilots, Wilson states they could avail of pay increases if they follow the ERC process.

"There's an obvious haemorrhaging of pilots", said one former Ryanair co-pilot who recently left for another airline and agreed to speak on condition of anonymity.

"Everyone who joins Ryanair clearly understands that we do not negotiate with Pilot Unions", said Wilson, referencing instead the ERC system.

A Ryanair spokeswoman said the company "did not comment on communication with our people".
