With the potent reality emerging to even the most bolted on IR thug, that unlimited supply is no more, an eerie silence is permeating the halls of the Airside business park in Dublin.

Taking the TUs to Court due to a possibly "unlawful" strike and the EU Comp payouts would be, er, interesting. There is some Research that would suggest that as a strike develops, both sides "dig in", - as long as they can afford the cost - and as they dig in, their attitudes to the other party harden, and their need to "win" becomes stronger.
So, a Court action might be a risk neither side wants to take.
But, being an idiot in IR terms is not unknown.

Hi
A quick update:
According a press release from RYR the Italian based pilots has signed and accepted a CLA ( Collective Labor Agreement)
According to RYR Italy represents 20 of the total production.

The Saga!

Ah , Now we are using words I like.
The Saga.
That indicates History is made.
There is more news on rte.ie and since I can not make a link to the article You all have to find it Yourself, sorry!

But in short , the German RYR employed pilots will have a 24 hrs strike.
What is more , RYR annual meeting (AMG) on the 20 sept is closed to the press AND no press conference afterwards.
I sense change in the air.
Regards
Cpt B

What happens if a journalist, who is also a shareholder, shows up?

The imposition of a news blackout at the AGM is somewhat desperate - if anything it shows MOL and co must feel they have lost control of the narrative.

But North Korea this is not...the truth will out regardless...and such clumsy attempt to suppress it will no doubt draw the ire of many in the press.

In a vacuum conspiracy theories will abound - Is there a shareholder revolt? Is there a schism in senior management? Is the company trying to hide something, like a serious financial or operational issue?

As I have said before, FR senior management are conditioned to always getting their own way; their inability to fight effectively from the back foot is becoming more evident by the day. It's looking increasingly likely that heads will roll before this is over, all the way to the top.

From the article...

Ryanair’s employment issues highlight long-standing concerns about governance and in particular Mr Bonderman’s oversight role as chair of the board and his ability to influence the CEO, Michael O’Leary.”
Finally we see the pendulum swing the other way.

Questions about the company’s business model and governance now pose a threat to shareholder value.
The company's business model is predicated on unlimited supply not only of pilots but all labour unit cost (AKA employees)
TPG aren't really known for their appreciation of humanity, like most private equity, the strategy is strip out cost, lever the balance sheet, break things up and sell them off...Rather like Mr O'Leary and the architects of the adversarial industrial model, a Chair, CEO and senior management welded to an adversarial business model ought rightly be sent to the woodshed. The whole business model needs to change, it has had its day.

And from the EU commissioner:
"Respecting EU law is not something over which workers should have to negotiate, nor is it something which can be done differently from country to country. I made this very clear to Mr. O'Leary today. I am not against Ryanair or against the low-cost business model. But with great success also comes great responsibility. The internal market is not a jungle; it has clear rules on fair labour mobility and worker protection. This is not an academic debate, but about concrete social rights of worker."

Very interesting stuff, as a pilot with tons of loans and no hours nor aviation job this gives a bit of hope.
