Netherlands - Ryanair pilots win financial compensation - June 1, 2019

After the August and September 2018 strikes by pilots at Eindhoven airport the company decided to close its affiliation in Eindhoven and offer the pilots a contract from another airport. The pilots originally struck because of too much flexibility in the working scheme and demanded the company to stop operating according to Irish law. This fight was part of a European struggle.
