For the RYR Italian pilots:

Why not pressing charges against Wilson?

It would be a very easy case for a Labor Judge to rule...

Not just the Italian bases but anywhere in Europe as a matter of fact. Employers can't threaten crew.

Holy crap 'Ryanair has agreed to recognise trade unions to avert the strike action by pilots today'

From the BBC

Ryanair says it has invited pilots unions from several counties to talks that could recognise them.

Ryanair chief executive Michael O'Leary said:

"Recognising unions will be a significant change for Ryanair, but we have delivered radical change before.

"Putting the needs of our customers first, and avoiding disruption to their Christmas flights, is the reason why we will now deal with our pilots through recognised national union structures and we hope and expect that these structures can and will be agreed with our pilots early in the New Year.”

The Irish company has written to pilot organizations in Ireland, the U.K., Germany, Italy, Spain and Portugal inviting each of them to talks “to recognize these unions as the representative body for pilots in Ryanair in each of these countries,” it said in a statement Friday.
Ideally they would recognize EERC for all the 80+ bases, but it is a first step.

Well, it just shows what you can do if you stick together. Wow!

There'll be a lot of euphoria on the various bulletin boards but it's worth remembering that most Leopards don't change their spots. Ryanair have proven themselves to be masters of spin and this may just be another of their twists and turns. It's critical that all the Ryanair pilots now stick together and force through changes for the better. Better for themselves and better for the rest of the airline industry.

The long road towards decent Ts&Cs within Ryanair begins now so stick together, keep going and good luck.

(I'm assuming this isn't some kind of false news

Excellent news.

Now the really hard work begins. A union is only as strong as its members and you need reps and stewards with skin as thick as M.O's ego.

Good luck.

I believe a chain reaction has now begun, if they refuse to recognise all other bases, they will simply threaten to go on strike themselves.
I say bravo and keep the pressure up!

Bloody good work! Michael O'Lier down on his knees - what a wonderful position to see him in! A sincere congratulations to all the brave Ryanair pilots for standing your grounds! A giant leap forward!

Or it could be a cheap ploy to delay the strikes until after Christmas when they will do less damage. Only time will see.

Very well done folks!

But be cautious, you won a battle, but not the war. Most of you don’t have any bargaining experience, stay united and listen to the advice of long time experts like VC Ingolf Schumacher and others from the various countries! FR will try to screw you wherever possible.

Congrats anyhow!

Great work! Well played, guys. And no, we don't need O'Leary on his knees, just to recognise his employees as professionals who are doing a great job for him.

Here it is from the horse's mouth:

Ryanair Statement

This is probably the most important bit:
...as long as they establish Committees of Ryanair pilots to deal with Ryanair issues, as Ryanair will not engage with pilots who fly for competitor airlines in Ireland or elsewhere.
No union reps from other airlines allowed.

I think if they are trying to pull this, more pilots will be motivated to join future strikes because Ryanair publicly admitted that they are afraid of strikes.

In what circumstances do you think a company council would have representation from another company's pilots? Would not union officers suffice?
