Spain -Ryanair sues workers who did not accept pay deal and remain on strike -July 14, 2015

Ryanair is suing its baggage handlers from one trade union, who remain on strike after the other unions accepted a deal. A dispute broke out between Ryanair and four trade unions at Madrid’s Barajas airport over low wages, late or underpayment of holiday allowances, lack of basis timetables for full-time workers and respect for the remuneration of medical visits. All unions declared a strike, which led to an agreement on employment conditions that was signed by UGT, CCOO and CGT on 12 June. Trade union CTA, however, did not accept the agreement and continued its strike actions. Ryanair, which has also found itself in court in disputes with Danish staff  and is facing strike actions in Denmark and Sweden this month, is now trying to take legal action against these employees in the Madrid court.
