The USO union denounces the dismissal of seven crew members

The USO union has denounced this Thursday the illegal dismissal of seven cabin crew in Ryanair since the beginning of the strike that celebrates its third day this Thursday for reasons “that the Labor Inspectorate already warned that they were not legal”. On the other hand, the airline notes that “respects Spanish law and the right to strike“, but the crew cannot refuse to operate minimum service flights, since this action is “illegal”.

In a statement, USO assures that the seven crew members -three from the Malaga base, two from Barcelona, ​​one in Girona and another in Santiago de Compostela- have been fired in a “withering for not having obeyed illegal orders” of the airline during the strike days.

According to the union, in various meetings to which the Labor Inspectorate summoned the legal representatives of the workers and Ryanair, “they warned the company that they had to comply with Spanish legislation on the right to strike.”

The company claims there have been “a small number of cases” where crew members “have refused to operate minimum service flights” and have caused an “unnecessary interruption” in passengers’ travel plans. The airline explains that all minimum services flights are “clearly” communicated to the entire crew, since the strike is not allowed on those protected flights.
