BALPA recognition at Ryanair

The way I see things is like is, BALPA membership is in general a good thing, however when Ryanair says that recognition will lead to base growth including command positions going else where you have to believe them. Just look at their track record, this is the company who froze all growth in Dublin, Manchester and pulled out of Rimini for reasons that made no commercial sense. Any move which will encourage them to move new aircraft and routes out of the UK is a bad thing. We currently have a five year deal and all the union recognition in the world wont change that. In fact I can’t see how BALPA will be able to effect conditions in Germany, Russia or wherever the new bases will be. So while I plan to remain a member of BALPA I don’t believe that recognition by Ryanair will benefit me in any way at the moment.

Question: Would freezing the STN base really work for Ryanair?

Answer: BALPA get regognition; Ryanair freeze STN; FOs start leaving (which will happen anyway); Where will they recruit FOs from when there are no longer any command prospects?

They can't expand at STN anymore anyway, because there aren't anymore slots.

So the 'freeze' STN and blame it on BALPA recognition.

The reason you need to get BALPA recognition is because in future whatever the ERC agrees with the Management has a LEGAL standing, and if the Management breach the agreements, there is a LEGAL recourse of action. Right now, it doesn't matter a jot WHAT the agreement says, the Management have already & will continue to break the agreement, and there isn't a damn thing you or I or the ERC can do about it.
