Ryanair takes another step closer to peace deal with cabin crew

Ryanair claims it has signed a new labour agreement with the German cabin crew union Ver.di to cover all of its German-based employees.

The airline said the new collective labour agreement framework and social plan delivered pay increased and other benefits over the next two years.

It said the deal also confirmed the application of German labour laws to Ryanair's cabin crew.

The airline also claimed that its Italian cabin crew have voted 88% in favour of the collective labour agreement signed recently between Ryanair and the three main cabin crew unions FIT CISL, ANPAC and ANPAV.

"This CLA, which delivers pay and benefit improvements, will now apply to all of Ryanair's cabin crew in Italy for the next three years," said Ryanair.

Over the past week, Ryanair has also signed new recognition agreements with cabin crew unions in Greece (RACU) and Sweden (UNIONEN).

It said it will now work with these unions on long term CLAs.

Ryanair's chief people officer Eddie Wilson said: "We are pleased to sign this CLA agreement with Ver.di, which will lead to pay improvements and other benefits for our German based cabin crew, subject to them voting in favour of this agreement over the coming week.

"This follows a very successful CLA ballot in Italy and recent cabin crew recognition agreements in Greece and Sweden.

"These are further concrete signs of the substantial progress Ryanair is making in concluding agreements with our people and their unions in many different EU countries."
