IALPA, a branch of Fórsa, has commenced a ballot of its pilot members at Ryanair for industrial action. The ballot commenced at noon on Tuesday (23rd July).
The union said the decision to ballot reflected the frustration and disappointment of pilots with the lack of progress in ongoing pay talks with the company.
Head of Division Angela Kirk said Fórsa would continue to engage with Ryanair in order to try and bring talks to a satisfactory conclusion. The union is scheduled to meet with management at the airline next Tuesday, 30th July.
The ballot of pilots is to conclude on Friday 9th August.
