Instability at Ryanair
Ryanair is challenged by strikes in the united kingdom and Spain, caught in failed mediation rounds in Ireland, left by the COO who was simply hired specifically to greatly help with the transition to an unionized company and suing their very own pilots because of their decisions as union representatives. In this context, shareholders will be evaluating Ryanair’s actual progress on improving labor relations. 2 yrs following the company pledged to “interact&rdquo and reward; using its cabin and pilots crew, the labor unrest have not settled. Despite agreements signed with several unions – after protracted negotiations – Ryanair is apparently lacking an obvious long-term strategy on how best to develop a genuine culture of social dialogue using its employees.
“Unionisation had not been imposed on the airline – it had been management’s choice,” says ECA Secretary General Philip von Schöppenthau. “It had been also a selection to create an ambitious target to become socially responsible employer. However when Ryanair pledged this, the expectations were raised by them of these own employees. Today &ndash and; two years &ndash later; from their perspective, Ryanair has didn’t deliver. The business far continues to be, a long way away from anything like stable labor relations across its network and from lasting industrial peace.”
