Ryanair reaches deal with pilots' union after strikes caused disruption to thousands of passengers


 

An agreement has been reached in talks between Ryanair and a pilots' union which could bring an end to disruptive strikes.
 
Negotiations had been continuing to try to resolve the long-running dispute over conditions, base transfers and annual leave that has resulted in cancelled flights across Europe.


In a statement the Forsa union said: "Following a 22-hour negotiating session, which began on Wednesday morning and concluded Thursday morning, agreement has been reached between Forsa and Ryanair in the pilots' dispute.


"The proposed agreement will now go to ballot, with a recommendation for acceptance from Forsa and its Ryanair pilot representatives.


"The union has been asked by facilitator Kieran Mulvey to make no public comment while the ballot is conducted."


It gave no further details of the agreement.
