Czech Republic: Stop union busting at Ryanair

In partnership with the European Transport Workers Federation, which embraces transport trade unions from the European Union, the European Economic Area, and Central and Eastern Europe. The ETF represents more than 5 million transport workers from more than 200 transport unions and 41 European countries.

Cabin crew union B.United was recently registered in the Czech Republic, representing direct Ryanair employees and agency workers. The workers notified Ryanair on 28 May that the union exists and requested an emergency meeting on 1 June. A day later, on 29 May, three union leaders -- Matteo Pizzolato, Andrea Schiraldi, Izhar Arcos Poveda -- were fired by Ryanair. This is a clear attack on the right to organise of all Ryanair workers and an extreme intimidation tactic. The workers are determined to oppose these actions with the help of the Czech union Odborový svaz dopravy (OSD).

You can support them in their struggle by sending a message to the Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš and Minister of Labour and Social Affairs Jana Málačová.
