The union said that the minimum services requested by the company, make it “impossible for the workers to carry out the strike.”
Today was supposed to be the first day of action that was called to try and kick start the negotiation of the first collective agreement of Ryanair’s ground staff, which has been on hold since 2020.
A statement issued by the union said they would be relooking at the issue and would agree further action in the coming days.
The strike called by Vueling workers will, however, continue as planned.
The USO-Air Sector union said on Wednesday, October 26 that strike action will continue until January 2023 and will affect the following airports:
Madrid Malaga Barcelona
Alicante Seville Mallorca
Ibiza Valencia Girona
Santiago de Compostela Reus
Tenerife South Tenerife Norte
Jerez Santander Las Palmas Zaragoza
Fuerteventura Mahón Almería
A statement issued by the union said that the collective agreement needed to be renegotiated with discussions having been put on hold since 2020.
Partial stoppages will take place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in November from 4 to 7 am, from midday to 3 pm and 9 to 11 pm.
Similar strikes will be held in December on 6,10,16,17,18, 22 and the 23 whilst 24 hour strikes will take place on December 8, 30 and 31.
Finally 24-hour strikes have been called for January 6 and 8.
Among the demands according to RTVE are the regularisation of allowances according to the CPI of 2021 or the delivery of complete uniformity in time and form for all contracted personnel.
They have also demanded the regularisation of shift publication to provide regular days for full-time workers, as well as paid leave for attending medical appointments and court cases.
Similar strike action to be taken by Ryanair ground staff will also be taken by the USO staff at Vueling Airlines.
