Agreement reached between pilots and Ryanair
Ryanair and trade union Forsa have reached agreement in their talks over pilots’s dispute at the airline.
Talks between Ryanair and the pilot’s union Forsa began on Wednesday morning and concluded on Thursday morning, at about 7.30am, after a 22-hour negotiating session.
350 Irish-based pilots have staged five one-day strikes at the company since the beginning of last month in a dispute over base transfers, promotions, leave and other issues.
The proposed agreement will go to ballot, with a recommendation for acceptance from Forsa and Ryanair pilots representatives.
The union has been asked by facilitator Kieran Mulvey, to make no public comment while the ballot is conducted.
The Irish Airline Pilots’ Association had pledged not to serve notice of further strikes on the airline. It is seeking a transparent system for dealing with the issues in dispute.
