The Ryanair cabin crew (TCP) strike This Tuesday has caused four cancellations and 30 delays, according to sources from the USO union. Specifically, the four flights that will not depart have departures and arrivals from the airports of Madrid, Santiago de Compostela and Fuerteventura.
This is the second round of stoppages at Ryanair's Spanish bases that began yesterday, Monday, and left six cancellations and 244 delays. The first batch occurred from Monday to Thursday of last week with 20 cancellations and 784 delays.
The TCP of the ten bases that Ryanair has in Spain are called to stop by USO and Sitcpla from Monday to Thursday until January 7. The unions demand a change of attitude from the airline and that it resume the negotiation of a collective agreement that includes decent working conditions and under Spanish legislation for its workers.
Ryanair has already suffered 14 more days of strike this summer that resulted in nearly 300 canceled flights to or from Spain, according to the union, which denounces that since the beginning of these mobilizations the company has illegally fired 11 TCP and has opened sanctioning files to another hundred.
Meanwhile, the airline highlighted last week that it expects a "minimal" impact on its operations in Spain due to these stoppages and recalled that it has recently reached an agreement with the main Spanish union, CC.OO., on salaries, schedules (four active days followed by three days off) and the complements of their Spanish cabin crew.
