At the same time, RYANAIR wrote them and invited each of them to discuss. Everything will be possible as long as they will appoint Ryanair Pilot Committees to handle Ryanair causes.
Ryanair will not engage in talks with pilots flying for competing airlines in Ireland or from anywhere.
RYANAIR made this decision to avoid any danger of disruption by pilots' unions for customers and its flights during Christmas week. Ryanair is asking these pilots 'unions to counter the threat of a strike on Wednesday, December 20, so that customers can enjoy their trips to the Christmas house without any danger or concern about the pilots' strike threatening their travel plans.
Michael O'Leary, Ryanair, said:
"Christmas flights are very important to our customers and we want to eliminate any worries or concerns that they might be disturbed by an organized pilots action next week.
If the best way to do this is to talk to our pilots through a recognized trade union process, then we are ready to do so. Today I wrote to these unions, inviting them to discuss trade union recognition, and I asked them to counter the threat of a strike planned for Christmas week.
Trade union recognition will be a major change for Ryanair, but we have also undergone radical changes in the past, most recently when we launched Ryanair Labs or the very popular 'Always Getting Better' customer experience program on 2013.
Putting our customers' needs first and avoiding disruptions to their Christmas flights are the reasons why we will negotiate with pilots through a structure recognized by the national union and hope, and expect that these structures will now be agreed with our pilots early. in the New Year. "
