Ryanair And Pilots Union Have Asked Third Party To Help End Dispute

Ryanair and Forsa union will bring in a third party mediator in an attempt to end the dispute.

This would stop a series of upcoming strikes which have made a mess of people's holiday plans.

25% of pilots were on strike yesterday while another quarter is due to strike next week.

According to the Irish Mirror, the airline said: “Ryanair now feels the only way to introduce common sense is by way of third-party mediation and to this end is suggesting Mr Kieran Mulvey, formerly of the Labour Commission and Workplace Relations Commission.”

Forsa responded: “Ryanair’s announcement that it will accept independent third-party assistance in its dispute with pilots, which was made without preconditions, is an unexpected and positive development.

“The union, which has been calling for third-party assistance for many weeks, will consult with its members in the company and looks forward to talking to Kieran Mulvey about when a process could begin.”
