Ryanair, Anpac & Anpav sign first recognition agreement for Italian based cabin crew

Ryanair has signed its first cabin crew union recognition agreement with ANPAC and ANPAV, who will be the representative body for Ryanair directly employed cabin crew in Italy. This agreement follows extensive negotiations with ANPAC and ANPAV since Ryanair’s December 2017 announcement that it was willing to recognise unions for collective bargaining purposes.

Ryanair said that it welcomes the constructive engagement of ANPAC and ANPAV, which led to the signing of this first cabin crew recognition agreement, in Italy, which currently accounts for over 80 of Ryanair’s 400+ aircraft fleet and approx. 20% of Ryanair’s cabin crew.

“This is our first cabin crew union recognition agreement (which follows recognition agreements with pilot unions in the UK and Italy earlier this year) and further demonstrates Ryanair’s progress on  recognising and negotiating with unions across Europe for our people,” says Ryanair’s Chief People Officer Eddie Wilson. “We are making good progress with other cabin crew unions across Europe and we hope to sign more recognition agreements with both pilot and cabin crew unions in the coming weeks.”
