Ryanair's Ireland-based pilots have announced they will join a strike by their UK counterparts on 22 & 23 August after mediation talks failed to end in an agreement.

Ryanair unions representing cabin crew in Spain announced plans to hold 10 days of strikes in September 2019 unless the Irish airline changes its plans to close several bases in the country.

Transavia France employees plan to strike from 16 August 2019, citing a deplorable internal climate.

Not only the employees, but also the pilots: Challenging the substance and the format of the agreement for the development pf Air France's low-cost subsidiary, which was signed in July between the management and the SNPL pilots union of Air France, the Transavia Pilots' Union (affiliated to the CFDT) filed a strike notice lasting from September 1st to October 15th. They called for a hard strike!

Ryanair has been granted an injunction to stop a 48-hour strike planned by its Irish-based pilots, as it awaits the outcome of a court action to prevent its UK-based pilots walking out.
