However, numerous flight cancellations are damaging to the success story. Your post:7 min Date:24/10/2017 from: Frontal 21 of October 24, 2017 Availability: Video available until 24.10.2018, 21:00 The Irish low-cost airline Ryanair has become Europe's largest airline with a simple recipe: punctual landings, spartan facilities and cheap tickets. This strategy has paid off for the self-employed market leader for low-cost flights in Europe. The company recorded a profit of 1.3 billion euros last year. But the image has recently suffered. In September the low-cost airline had to cancel 2,100 flights. 400,000 customers in Europe were affected. Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary cited as the reason the too fast growth of the airline and a failed vacation planning with the pilots. He tried to calm down, "Was this the best day in the history of Ryanair, no, did we build crap, yes, damn our reputation and apologize? Cheap airline Ryanair is supposed to employ flight attendants illegally But after research from Frontal 21 and WELT , Ryanair still has completely different problems. According to the opinion of recognized labor lawyers, the airline is concerned about its 700 flight attendants stationed in Germany at unlawful conditions. The editors have about 50 pages of contracts and company-internal memos. In this case, for example, the cabin crew must accept unrestricted unpaid leave of absence. Moreover, employees may be terminated at any time without giving reasons. This is how Enrico Ursi, flight attendant at Ryanair. Ursi is an Italian, 33 years old, married, he has two children and lives with his family in southern Germany. According to his employment contract, his home base is Baden-Baden. Although he has lived in Germany for five years, Ryanair insists that his employment contract is subject to Irish law. This has consequences for Ursi. The notice period is a maximum of eight weeks, he must take unpaid leave of absence and accept a confidentiality agreement with the Ryanair medical officer. Ursi is convinced after several years with Ryanair: We are the new modern slaves. The contracts, the payment, the lack of support, the conditions, the costs - I do not think that one can do with dignity. Enrico Ursi, flight attendant at Ryanair German labor lawyers are sure that the design of the contract at Ryanair is illegal. "Those who work permanently in Germany will not be able to agree on a foreign labor law in the employment contract that underpins compulsory employee protection under German law," says the well-known employment lawyer Peter Schüren, professor at the University of Münster, who has analyzed the Ryanair contracts Formulations in the employment contracts of the flight attendants are not compatible with German labor law. Ryanair defends the design of his employment contracts and refers to Irish labor law. Finally, the flight attendants would work mainly in the air and there in Irish airplanes. As far as Ryanair knew, there were no differences between Irish and German labor law, except for the legally prescribed maximum probationary period. In Ireland, this amounts to twelve, in Germany only six months. The company acknowledges that it has adapted the Irish contracts to German law, but only in one respect. The company "... no other differences, but we have asked the speakers of the German pilots to name other differences, and we will include them in our contracts." Basically, the company shares with: In the case of disputes, German labor courts would be competent Bremen's law professor Wolfgang Däubler has analyzed the Ryanair contracts on behalf of the Bundestag's Left Group. He also concludes that the Irish airline does not comply with European law. The left-wing politician, Klaus Ernst, is calling for the creation of social and air-port licensing requirements for airlines. "There are exploitation agreements, then there are worse exploitation agreements and then the contracts of Ryanair come," says Ernst. "I have never seen such a treaty that violates the rights of the employed, in such a way that one can really talk about brutal exploitation," said Ernst against ZDF. The Federal Ministry of Labor does not wish to comment on the specific case, but makes it clear: "If the rights of employees are to be denied to them under international private law, this is unacceptable." In mid-September 2017, for example, the European Court of Justice ruled on such Ryanair contracts in Belgium. Ryanair's staff executive, Eddie Wilson, commented on the court's decision in a press release saying, "We do not believe that this affects the contracts of our Irish employees in any way." The longtime Ryanair flight attendant Enrico Ursi does not want to accept this. Also because he earned in his job only about 1000 euros net a month. "With this job I do not have the rounds. Payday, that is to say for me: take the money and pay directly the bills with it. "The euphoria for the Traumberuf flight attendant has now gone by with him.
