Ryanair pilots announce two more one-day strikes by some pilots based in Ireland



Ryanair is facing two more days of strike action by some pilots based in Ireland.

 
A pilots union announced that the 24-hour strikes will take place on Friday 20 July and Tuesday 24 July.


The news comes after the airline faced its first day of industrial action in Ireland since it bowed to pressure from staff and recognised trade unions.


Ryanair cancelled 30 flights between Ireland and the UK because of Thursday's 24-hour strike.


A quarter of Ryanair's Irish-based pilots launched the strike over their pay and conditions.
Their concerns include a dispute over seniority, as well as the procedures for allocation of base transfers, promotions and annual leave.
