Ryanair signs agreement with Italian pilots union

Ryanair has signed a Union Recognition agreement with ANPAC, the Italian Airline Pilots Association, following extensive negotiations.

The body will now be the sole representative body for Ryanair employed pilots in Italy.

Ryanair announced in December a u-turn on its long-held policy not to recognise unions for collective bargaining purposes.
It said this recognition agreement with ANPAC is significant because Italy currently accounts for almost 80 of its 400-plus current aircraft fleet and around 20% of Ryanair's pilot body.
Ryanair's chief people officer Eddie Wilson said: "This agreement, which follows our signed UK recognition agreement with BALPA in January, validates the decision of Ryanair's Board in December to recognise unions.

"We are making good progress with unions in other major EU countries and we hope to sign more recognition deals with pilots and cabin crew unions over the coming weeks and months."
