Regarding the week of protest action on 12th March 2012 which is planned against exploitation of Crew at Ryanair...
Thank you for your email. We are, of course, at all opposed to your proposal in principal. In our opinion, the trade union leadership should have adopted a far stronger position on the treatment of Ryanair workers by the company. From many reports and documentaries etc it is quite obvious that Ryanair treats their staff with utter contempt and disrespect.
We would however suggest contacting as many unions as possible to garner their support as it is only with a very wide-based campaign that it can have any success/effect. If the unions were behind an initiative like this we be very happy to support it. I hope this clarifies our position and we wish you the very best with your attempt to highlight a worthy cause. Happy New Year and all the best.
