Ryanair pilots in Portugal vote for industrial action

Published on 06/12/2017

Ryanair pilots in Portugal have voted in favour of industrial action up to and including strike action, according to the Portuguese Civil Aviation Pilots Union.

The move comes amid mounting discontent among pilots about the airline’s refusal to negotiate with their chosen representative bodies, and following the mismanagement of annual leave which led to the cancellation of over 20,000 flights.
