Ryanair's Spanish cabin crew unions call off Tuesday strike

Unions representing Ryanair cabin crew in Spain called off plans to strike on Tuesday to allow time for further talks, the SITCPLA and USO unions said in a statement.

Ryanair suffered a number of strikes last year by pilots and cabin crew, forcing it to cancel hundreds of flights, after the airline recognised unions for the first time in 2017.

But it got through Christmas without any industrial action.

According to the strike plans agreed with the Spanish labour authorities, cabin crew union members would operate all flights between Spanish islands and 50 percent of flights between Spanish islands and the Spanish mainland on the strike days.

But they will only operate 25 percent of flights to and from Spain over 500 km.

Ryanair last week said it did not expect customers would be disrupted by the action but a spokesman for the SITCPLA union said he did not think disruption to flights could be avoided if cabin crew go through with their strike action. (Reuters)
