The fifth day of Ryanair's crew strike advances normally

The fifth strike day of Ryanair cabin crew (TCP) is going normally, as indicated by the airline, something that the USO union attributes to the "excessive minimum services" to which they are quoted "almost all of the template".

Ryanair has said in a statement that the first wave of flights to and from Spain has been made with a 94% punctuality, with some delays due to weather conditions, and they do not expect "any interruption" related to the strike.

For its part, the USO union – one of the organizers of the crew strike together with Sitcpla – has confirmed that "there are no incidents", justifying this situation in the "high" minimum services that "prevent workers from exercising their right to strike".

According to USO, the only form of protest that workers can exercise is the refusal to carry out the on-board sales service which, according to the union, is being seconded by 70% of the workforce.

In the statement sent, the low-cost airline has reiterated its invitation to both unions to resume the talks as soon as possible since the closure of the winter bases with losses, such as the Canary Islands due to delays in deliveries of the Boeing Max plane , will not be revoked "for many pointless strikes that are called."

This is the fifth of the ten strike days that USO has called for Ryanair cabin crew as a protest against the closing announcements of the Spanish bases in Tenerife South, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Gerona.

To today's strike day another one will be added this Sunday after the second one last September 1, 2, 6, and 8.

In addition to the strike of the cabin crew, the Spanish pilot union Sepla has called five days of work stoppages in Ryanair (19, 20, 22, 27 and 29 September) before the closure of these bases which, according to their forecasts, would suppose the dismissal of more than 500 employees of the airline, including 150 pilots.
