RYANAIR cabin crews based in Spain are set to stage three strikes this week as a row continues between the budget airline and unions over the alleged non-implementation of Spanish labour laws.
The SITCPLA and USO unions say that national laws are being snubbed by Ryanair and that temporary cabin crew staff is being hired via “illegal agencies”.
The company has reportedly announced it is willing to accept employment legislation in France and Germany for its staff based there where this conflicts with Irish law and is more favourable to workers but has not done so as yet with the legal framework for Spain.
The strike dates have been declared as Tuesday, January 8th; Thursday, January 10th; and Sunday, January 13th.
Ryanair crews have staged a number of protest strikes in Spain and across Europe over the last 12 months.
