Pilots of Belgian airline Ryanair have announced another strike in recent weeks, RTBF reports. Work is scheduled for the weekend of July 23-24. At the same time, the pilots of the Irish airline will strike in France.
A three-day strike by Ryanair pilots and cabin crew, who operate from Charleroi and Zaventem airports, took place on June 24-26. According to media reports, 300 flights of this carrier were canceled at that time. Demonstrators complained about poor working conditions and lower wages than Belgians lowest wages.
According to information from the trade unions, the protest brought nothing, so on July 23-24, the pilots will strike again. It is not clear at the moment whether or not the cabin crew will join them.
Ryanair pilots strike in Belgium
As Belgian public radio RTBF indicated on Monday, Belgian Ryanair pilots will join the strike planned by their French colleagues at the same time. “The reason is the non-compliance with the law and the arrogant attitude of the management of the company,” Didier Lippi, secretary of the airline’s cabin crew union, told De Standard.
“The climate has deteriorated significantly since the last strike,” Libby said, adding that the attitude of the company’s management was “arrogant and contemptuous.”
There was also a three-day strike by Brussels Airlines pilots and cabin crew at the end of June. They complained about the overload of work and demanded a wage increase. Finally, an agreement was reached last week between the Belgian carrier’s management and trade unions. The airlines agreed to cancel 675 flights in July and August to ease the workload.
