Spain-Ryanair cabin crew renew their strike for 12 days in July


MADRID, July 2 (Reuters) – Ryanair cabin crew in Spain, who have been on a three-day strike for better working conditions since Thursday, are renewing their strike for 12 days in July, the USO and SICTPLA unions said on Saturday. .

The airline has canceled several flights from Thursday to Saturday and will again face disruption due to a split strike at the ten Spanish airports where it operates.

The movement is renewed from July 12 to 15, from July 18 to 21 and from July 25 to 28, specify in a press release the unions, which claim “a change of attitude of the direction”.

They ask the Spanish government “not to allow Ryanair to violate the Labor Code and constitutional rights such as the right to strike”.

The company said in a statement on Saturday to expect “minimal disruption to its flights for July, given weakly sustained minor strikes in Spain”.

Ryanair cabin crew have been observing walkouts in Belgium, Spain, Portugal, France and Italy since June to demand higher wages and better working conditions, as a wave of strikes hits airlines in Europe in the face of galloping inflation.

Ryanair employees claim that the Irish airline does not respect the labor codes of the countries concerned, particularly in terms of minimum pay, and denounce degraded working conditions. (Report Jessica Jones, French version Sophie Louet)
