Ryanair confirmed today that it has signed a Collective Labour Agreement (CLA) framework and Social Plan with Verdi, the German cabin crew union, to cover all of low-cost’s German based cabin crew. This agreement (which is now subject to a cabin crew ballot) confirms the application of German labour law to airline’s cabin crew "and delivers pay increases and other benefits" for all its German based cabin crew over the next two years.
The low-cost also confirmed that its Italian cabin crew have voted overwhelmingly (88%) in favour of the CLA signed recently between the carrier and the 3 main cabin crew unions FIT CISL, ANPAC, and ANPAV. This CLA, "which delivers pay and benefit improvements", will now apply to all of its cabin crew in Italy for the next 3 years.
Over the past week, the Irish air company has also signed new recognition agreements with cabin crew unions in Greece (RACU) and Sweden (UNIONEN). It will now work with these unions on long term CLAs to cover cabin crew in these two Countries.
