We can confirm Ryanairdontcare Campaign will continue to be the voice of exploited crew at Ryanair and Protests will be stepped up in March...

Ryanair. Flight attendants have no rights. The new forced labor The two articles below are translated from Italian to English..........

Article below from Italy.....

ROME - In the Ryanair once we almost closed the doors on Irish soil, but this small detail becomes impossible to interpret unambiguously when it comes to flights operated exclusively in Italian airspace. It is not clear, in fact, why the Scratch easily be sold on board even domestic flights, despite the State Monopoly prohibit foreign lotteries in Italy, and always on the same guidelines, then made ​​in our country, you can buy other products such as perfumes, watches, necklaces, even earrings, all brands of so-called "fashion", a savings that can even reach 18.50 euros compared to the cost in stores on these airports.

But with a difference. In this case the sales service on board is accompanied by a receipt. It would seem, in fact, that the Italian state has forced Ryanair to issue a receipt when the tax representative figure to be the Meridian Vat based in Naples, Italy. A company calling itself-as he wrote in his web site - a leader to manage the repayment of VAT paid on services used abroad. So far so good. But a question arises: why the products sold in domestic fiscalizzati are mandatory, while the Italian employees of Ryan Air, which reside in our country, have no rights with respect to their colleagues in other Italian carriers? There are perhaps two weights and two measures? Or rather regular workers and ghost workers? It seems that the legislative powers to a dispute are all there. However, to better understand this contradiction, we think of an Italian businessman who decides to relocate production in England.
Possibilissima operation, provided the new company will comply fully with all laws of the host country, especially in regard to hiring and employment contracts. But for the workers of the Italian  Ryanair is not the case. One question this, searching for answers from the distant 2006, when the union SDL (intercatergoriale Workers Union) urged the Italian authorities, labor inspectorates to anti-trust, so we proceeded to an examination of contract law and adopted by the Irish company . A request was also raised among others by the same Ryanair flight attendants, who anonymously for fear of repercussions by the Irish company had reported a working condition outside of any statutory provision, to which each company operates in the national soil should follow. At the time, exactly 24 January 2006, three members of the coalition government of then deposited a parliamentary Prodi, whose contents at a glance asked to clarify the conditions under which they were placed on the workers of Ryanair Italians who worked as a flight attendants and were not settled according to Italian. Some time passed, but the request fell into oblivion. A year later, in April 2007, provided the union dell'Sdl asked for an investigation on the condition of low cost Irish carrier's employees residing in Italy. In this regard, the union presented a petition to the court by which he denounced a situation of extreme insecurity and - in their view - the "illegality" of the Ryanair staff who work in Italy: "Ryanair can be fired at any time - he wrote the ' sdl - do not pay taxes, but do not pay health contributions benefit the health service as unemployed, and not the health service of the sailors as the flight attendants and pilots Italian, ENAC are not subject to regulations regarding safety and limits of flight and the service provided for the crew, do not pay social security contributions and thus do not enjoy retirement.'' For the latter, while undergoing a state of exploitation, just think of the ban to join a union, for the Italian State has not existed as such are unemployed and receive compensation from a third country, with the consequent avoidance. Complaints were sent to public prosecutors in Bergamo, Rome, Velletri and Pisa, a city where the Irish company opened His first operational bases. Now four years later the situation remained unchanged. And so the low cost carrier is not in fact obliged to comply with Italian laws and regulations with regard to his personal use in Italy. Indeed, Ryanair continues unabated to increase the operational bases in Italian soil. Today there are even ten: Ciampino, Pisa, Bergamo, Bologna, Brindisi, Bari, Trapani, Alghero, Cagliari, Pescara, and finally with a passenger traffic in 2009 amounted to 20 million passengers only in Italy, of a total of over 66 million. One wonders how can this happen. Ryanair also in France adopted the same treatment for the staff, but the French Council of State in July of 2007, after a battle with strokes of appeals lasted 9 months, definitely imposed on the carrier to apply to his Irish sailors deployed in the country the law, social law and the French Labour Code. For this reason, the Irish company is about to leave even the 'last base of operations, one in Marseilles. In Italy, however things go the other way around. The Ryan Air, in fact, continues to widen his horizons, while on the job seems to operate under the protective cap of concessions from which it draws enormous advantages. And there are even those who exalt the low cost carrier defining the future of aviation. marketing strategies, you could venture, since the fantasy is not lacking in this company that often manages to spark heated debates. not least of which is pronounced by Michael O'Leary expects that in coming years even to passengers traveling on routes up to short-range fraction of the cost of 4 euros. And then there are special offers and a range of options such as the "last minute" that further lowering the cost of the ticket. But if you save on the ticket of course the voice of the cost of staff should maintain a favorable condition for this vector. Starting from the so-called operational bases, declared such by Ryanair, but only on paper, to avoid the contract and regulations for sailors under Italian law. Yet RyanAir flights originate just from Italian airports to return after 3 or 4 sectors on the same airport.
                                  The paper above turns to a flight attendant based in Ciampino
This means that its flight attendants and pilots reside in the Italian cities appointed to base weapons in all respects, just as Alitalia, Meridiana or Air One. With the difference that Italian sailors of the Irish company despite being used at home, work in the absence of protections and rights.
Just a small influence of season or a small injury to notice that the flight crew to Ryanair does not have any type of medical care in Italy as part of their deduction is for the welfare of Ireland. In payroll, which includes a salary of 12 months the amount of which is frozen until 2011 because of the economic crisis, a voice says: "Uni / Med / ID" equal to 27.08 euros, which is paid to assistants flight to cover any costs of medicines, uniforms and plastic ID card that employees are required to exhibit inside the airports
 Just a small influence of season or a small injury to notice that the flight crew to Ryanair does not have any type of medical care in Italy as part of their deduction is for the welfare of Ireland. In payroll, which includes a salary of 12 months the amount of which is frozen until 2011 because of the economic crisis, a voice says: "Uni / Med / ID" equal to 27.08 euros, which is paid to assistants flight to cover any costs of medicines, uniforms and plastic ID card that employees are required to exhibit inside the airports.
And in the face of privacy if a doctor makes a flight attendant a medical certificate must be presented at this company not only with prognosis indicates that the days of illness, as provided by law, but also with the diagnosis, because of justify the pathological cause of absence.
 In Italy there is the Cassa Marittima for all sailors whether airport or shipping. And always in Italy, as in other countries, the law provides that airlines comply with the directive from WHO (World Health Organization) issuing a booklet for international vaccination. A must is the prevention of yellow fever for all persons serving in flight, regardless of operating a flying medium-haul flights or even on intercontinental destinations with a high risk to health. But there is no trace of the flight attendants.

Not to mention the so-called patent for flight attendants in Italy that is released prior permission Civilavia, the body responsible for the Ministry of Transport, through an examination that evaluates both the technical preparation of each flight attendant in case of emergencies occurring on board, both the first aid procedures for a possible passenger. Patent to be maintained during the subsequent years will need further testing and especially the medical technicians, whose body controller is the IML, the Institute of Forensic Medicine of the Air Force states that the psychophysical ability of each mariner. Do not forget that we're talking about a work that takes place in 10 thousand meters of altitude in an environment so not totally compatible with being human. They know well the stewards and stewardesses of Ryan Air, which during the turnaround, that is, transit, must attend the landing and subsequent departure of passengers, clean the cabin and then check the integrity of safety equipment on board (safety check-ed). All in just 25 minutes, and often, but this does not happen in Italy because otherwise dilaterebbero times, with the refueling process under way. So a load of responsibility exasperating, considering the importance and complexity of these operations require. A job at the limit of tolerance for flight attendants, tells us who has tried, paid by the Irish company in two tranches, 28 and on 14 of each month, respectively, the "basic", or the basic pay and the pay of flight hours. A sum of between 1,200 to 1,500 euros per month, unless there are no sick days that they relieve the payroll because of deductions. The sum is paid into a bank account of the Bank of Ireland Italian that every employee is required to open up if it wants to receive the fees. It does not end here. Why in Ryanair employees have to pay everything. From the training course which costs around 1,500 euros, the uniform that will be repaid, but only when the employment relationship is extended with the Irish company indefinitely. 500 euros for 2 pants, 1 jacket, 5 shirts, 1 tie, and a trolley travel. It was just that. Once hired employees go in the airport parking is charged at their expense, and icing on the cake even though they work 12 consecutive hours, the company is not covered eating, so that caregivers are forced to bring home even water from drinking. So the twenty-first century Italian slaves residing in their country, but it is as well not exist. Yet looking at the receipts of Ryanair all you can say, except to be a vector verses in dramatic economic conditions, despite the crisis. In March of 2010 closed the year with over 2 billion collected on tickets sold and a profit which is around 319 million euros. And in late 2011 Michael O'Leary , boss of Ryanair has already estimated to reach 73 million passengers and then provides a significant increase in fleet and personnel.

"All this is happening - we have explained some flight attendants - in an atmosphere which reigns in constant fear of being fired at any moment. Just a prolonged illness, a negative report of the supervisor who pretend to assess passengers' actions of employees, or wanting to join a union to protect only those few, but sacred rights to be thrown out from morning to night. "

Former flight attendant talks about his experience in the Irish company: "For us no rights"
ROME - Andrea, 30 year old assistant of Ryanair, the no longer made. And so after three years spent waiting for a final contract that never arrived, bearing the same treatment to an employee of series B, or rather a beast of burden, he decided to give a final cut. So in the end the experience with Ryanair to Andrea has inevitably ended a few days ago after having seen clear day after day, his dignity as a worker, without guarantees and safeguards. Yes, because many of these workers are Italian, and depart regularly occur in one of 10 bases of the peninsula, but for their rights like their compatriots do not talk about their own. A very unusual situation, that despite the complaints from employees, questions tabled in Parliament (the first was in 2007 ed) all remained unchanged forever. Certainly if we were one of those countries where there is an obligation to recognize any citizen a decent treatment would not have happened. As in France, where on 11 January, Ryanair after legal action against its employment policies will be forced to leave his only source of Marseille. Reason? Pilots and flight attendants pay taxes and contributions in Ireland, but operate on French territory. In Italy, however, things go very differently.
As Andrew told us that after three years living in exasperation decided to be fired. "I deliberately opened disease without sending the certificate first, and so I have convened three times the base Dublin chiarissi so my position and eventually they fired me. " Why did you come to a decision so striking? I knew that would be enough for one day of illness negatively affect my professional conduct. Because getting sick, although it is a legitimate right to risk their jobs. In practice, Ryanair does not accept at all that his employee can become ill, so much so that the certificate is required to justify the absence of communicating the disease to the company, the face of the privacy law that applies in Italy. no longer was holding the grueling pace of this company that treats you like a slave, as a number. I was especially tired of waiting in the vain hope of gaining a permanent contract, which would never have given, given that within a year and a half had already been calls for open only five days of illness and this has fact - according to them-irreparably compromised my ability to get an appointment fixed. So ill be banned? Pretty much. You've just taken a forward contract, renewable annually. And if in this period also opened a single disease, or arrive late to your job opportunities for stable intake is greatly reduced. But not only. It 'also important that during the fixed term contract the employee bring concrete results of the company in economic terms. Or rather that it can sell more to the passenger. Whether it's a perfume, phone cards or scratch cards does not matter, because the only priority is to increase the company's revenue. And if you do not recalled well come from Ryanair, a worker becomes useless because it does not produce. For this reason, the Irish company secretly sent on board the "mystery passengers" that control without your knowledge and your ability to relate to the vendor company. In short, a continuous pressure relentlessly, because this company, think only in profit, even at the expense of safety. In what sense? Just think about that just a few minutes of conversation, during which it is a must even the slightest knowledge of the language English to join the group. In the work of Ryanair flight attendant is often chosen as an alternative remedy to rampant unemployment. There are a lot of people recruited from eastern Europe and, for the condition from which they are willing to accept everything. However an emergency situation on board un'aeromobile could prove fatal because of the lack of an understandable communication between the same colleagues. And that says it all. A special not just irrelevant for an airline ... In fact, in my opinion, and in reference to what I said before, the fact that safety is not just the priority of this troubled company, and indeed should open a serious discussion because in Italy the flight attendants should refer to specific safety regulations issued by the Ministry of Transport. And do not forget that this work involves a very high stress for the kind of life you carry 10 thousand meters of altitude. And do not talk about economic gratification. For example, the stand by mode, during which you must be at the disposal of the holding for 12 hours a day, is not even paid. As they are not even paid service hours. This means that if a failure or a sudden storm must stop for several hours at an airport for delayed departure not perceive anything. In France, Ryanair goes why not honor the contract beyond the Alps. In Italy, however, how are things? bad, even worse. If I think about my personal experience I almost threw away 3 years of my life. I worked in every respect in my country, but I never paid a penny of contribution in Italy, but in Ireland. Even join a trade union is effectively banned, and those who wanted to challenge this rule often had a hard life, so much to end up in some remote desert base. So Ryanair has seen fit to elect its workers a kind of representative who in theory should mention the problems of workers and bring them directly to the Dublin office. But paradoxically, the vote took place verbally in separate locations, without anything in writing. And so once again the Irish company is the host, ignoring the discontent felt in the Italian bases. So at this point I have said it better unemployed than a slave of a company that thinks of humans as a factory that soldiers should not and can not think. I lost my job but I recovered my dignity.
