Ryanair set to sign agreement with Italian cabin crew unions

Ryanair is in the final stages of reaching an agreement with Italian cabin crew unions following meetings yesterday (Thursday).

It met in Rome with Italy's three main cabin crew unions and signed a set of agreed principles which it says will form the basis of a comprehensive Collective Labour Agreement to cover its Italian based cabin crew from October 1 for three years.

The agreement will be governed by Italian law, will allow Italian cabin crew transition to local contracts over an agreed period, will bring a new pay structure and see the introduction of an Italian pension scheme.

Ryanair's chief people officer Eddie Wilson said: "This agreement follows recent cabin crew agreements in Ireland with Forsa and in the UK with Unite.

"This agreement is a further sign of the significant progress Ryanair is making in reaching agreements with our people and their unions in different EU countries, and disproves false claims made by smaller unions not involved in these negotiations, and who are threatening strikes later this winter, which will either not take place or be unsuccessful."

Industrial action in several European countries is planned for September 28 and has been described by unions as the 'biggest strike ever' to hit the airline.
