Fórsa trade union issued the following statement this afternoon (Wednesday):
“Fórsa is grateful to Justice McDonald and the staff of the Court Service for the expeditious way they have dealt with this case.
On foot of today’s ruling, the union has informed its members, who are directly-employed Ryanair pilots based in the Republic of Ireland, that the strikes planned for tomorrow (Thursday) and Friday (23rd August) will not now take place.
Once the union has the ruling in writing, we will consider it in detail and consult with our legal team. Only then will Fórsa be in a position to consider its next steps.
The union believes that it would be inappropriate to comment further until Justice McDonald has made a full interlocutory ruling.”
