The summer of strikes is continuing, as now some airline staff have plans for industrial action.
Some Spanish Ryanair workers have voted to strike at the end of June and start of July, sparking more concerns for Summer holidays.
It comes after airports have struggled to cope with demand, and airlines including Easyjet and British Airways have faced canceled flights over staff shortages.
Here’s everything you need to know.
Why are they striking?
Members of Spanish-based staff in the USO and SITCPLA unions have voted to strike over labor conditions and pay.
The general secretary of USO’s Ryanair section, Lidia Arasanz, said: “We have to summarize mobilization so that the reality of our situation is known and Ryanair is forced to abide by basic labor laws.”
It comes after Ryanair walked away from the table last week, saying the unions’ demands were “unreasonable”.
The unions claimed the company lacked commitment to the talks.
Bloomberg reported that the union also said it would coordinate with other unions in Belgium, France, Italy and Portugal.
Ryanair flies to more than 20 airports, including nine bases, in Spain.
It has more than 70 domestic routes as well as a large trade in tourists to and from the country, particularly from the UK and Ireland.
When will the strikes take place?
The unions voted to walk out for two three-day strikes from 24 June to 26 June and 30 June to 2 July.
They confirmed the dates at a press conference in Madrid on Monday.
This coincides with the beginning of the Scottish school summer holidays.
Will this affect my flight?
It is important not to panic. Ryanair has said it doesn’t expect these strikes to dramatically affect services.
It says the unions in question are not the main ones in the country, and that it has agreed to a deal with CCOO, “Spain’s largest and most representative union”.
It insists it is “delivering improvements for Spanish-based cabin crew and reinforcing Ryanair’s commitment to [their] welfare”.
Bloomberg reported a spokesperson as saying: “Ryanair has negotiated collective agreements covering 90 per cent of our people across Europe.
“In recent months we have been negotiating improvements to those agreements as we work through the Covid recovery phase.
“Those negotiations are going well and we do not expect widespread disruption this summer.”
They added: “Recent announcements by the much smaller USO and SITCPLA unions are a distraction from their own failures to deliver agreements. We believe that their strike calls will not be supported by our Spanish crews.”
