Ireland: Ryanair pilots vote overwhelmingly to strike over pay as airline accused of 'stalling' negotiations

"Ryanair pilots in Ireland vote to strike", 9 August 2019
Pilots employed directly by Ryanair in Ireland have voted overwhelmingly to strike – unless the airline agrees to union pay proposals by Monday 12 August.
Members of the Irish Airline Pilots’ Association (Ialpa) voted 94 per cent in favour of industrial action in a wide-ranging dispute over pay and working conditions...
...Ialpa says it is seeking pay levels and structures that are in line with sector norms. It says the airline, which posted profits of €1bn (£930m) last year, is in a healthy financial position and can fairly reward its pilots.
Ialpa is part of the Fórsa union, whose assistant general secretary, Ian McDonnell, accused the company of using stalling tactics in negotiations...
...It [Ryanair] said: “...The result of Fórsa’s ballot shows that less than half of Ryanair’s Irish pilots are members of Fórsa, and less than 60 per cent of...members participated in the ballot...Fórsa are still unable to explain what pay increase they are seeking on top of the 20 per cent increase already agreed, at a time when Ryanair pilots resignations have dwindled to zero..."
