Irish airline Ryan air’s low-cost airline in Germany began a 24-hour strike, forcing the company to cancel more than a third of its flights to and from the country.
The German news agency Euro news reported on Wednesday that German employees had called for a strike by the Verdi unions for service workers and the German pilots’ cockpit, noting that 30 employees gathered at Schoolfellow airport this morning, carrying banners reading “Ryan air Must be changed “and” no rights and no flights “.
Ryan air yesterday announced the cancellation of 150 flights from its 400 flights to and from Germany on the back of the strike, while the company is going to 19 airports in Germany.
The Verdi syndicate has threatened the Irish company to organize more strikes if the latter does not make concessions in the wage negotiations, as previous strikes by airline pilots in a number of European countries canceled hundreds of flights this summer.
The dispute between the Irish company and trade unions in several EU countries over a collective labor agreement is at the height of the dispute in mid-August, the biggest strike by pilots in the history of Ryanair, which affected 55 thousand passengers across Europe.
