Denmark -Unions take Ryanair to court -February 04, 2015

The looming conflict with Ryanair enters a new phase as the trade unions have decided to file a case in the Danish Labour Court (Arbejdsretten) to determine whether Ryanair should operate under Irish or Danish rules when it begins flying out of its new Copenhagen base.

The looming conflict with Ryanair (see our January Newsletter) enters a new phase as the trade unions have decided to file a case in the Danish Labour Court (Arbejdsretten) to determine whether Ryanair should operate under Irish or Danish rules when it begins flying out of its new Copenhagen base. The trade union confederation LO has stated that if the so-called ‘recognition proceedings’ determine that Ryanair must follow Danish rules, the decision will clear the way for a blockade. Ryanair already lost similar cases in France, Norway and Belgium. A blockade would mean that members of trade unions including 3F, Dansk Metal and HK would be barred from doing work from Ryanair, which would make it nearly impossible for the airline to handle baggage or receive fuel deliveries.
