Ryanair recognises Forsa union for Irish-based cabin crew

Ryanair today (30 August) said it has signed its fourth cabin crew union recognition agreement with the Forsa union – who will be the representative body for the carrier’s directly employed cabin crew in Ireland.

Ryanair said it “looks forward” to working with Forsa and the elected Ryanair (Cabin Crew) Company Council to conclude an early CLA for Ryanair’s directly employed cabin crew based in Ireland.

This agreement follows Ryanair’s cabin crew recognition deals with the Italian ANPAC, ANPAV and Fit-Cisl unions, UNITE the union in the UK and the Ver.di union in Germany.

Ryanair’s chief people officer, Eddie Wilson said: “We are pleased to sign this cabin crew recognition agreement with Forsa in Ireland. We look forward to working closely with both Forsa and their Company Council to address issues of concern to our directly employed Irish based cabin crew.

“This is a further sign of the progress Ryanair is making with trade unions since our December 2017 decision to recognise unions, with over 65% of our cabin crew now covered by recognition agreements and we hope to sign more agreements in the coming weeks.”
