Ryanair's Irish-Based Cabin Crew Accept Temporary Pay Cut To Save Jobs

Irish-based Ryanair cabin crew have accepted a temporary 10% pay cut to save jobs that were at risk due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Fórsa Statements

Trade union Fórsa, which negotiated the agreement, has confirmed that 62% of the 68% of cabin crew who voted in the ballot backed the pay cut.

The Irish Times quotes Fórsa official Ashley Connolly as saying, "This agreement is a product of the difficulties being faced by the aviation industry globally.

"Our cabin crew members understand the severity of this crisis. They've backed an agreement that protects their job and provides for a review of circumstances should they improve sooner than expected."

Ryanair said that the terms of the agreement should avoid the need for Irish-based cabin crew redundancies.

UK Agreement

The agreement follows news earlier this week that Ryanair's UK cabin crew have accepted pay reductions of between 5% and 10% to be restored over four years.
