(en) Britain, Freedom* Octoberr 2011 - RYANAIR RIP OFF

Date Mon, 05 Dec 2011 14:51:42 +0200


Building on the success of their Office Angels campaign Solidarity Federation have began working with the ‘Ryanair Don’t Care’ campaign to highlight the ruthless employment practices of the profitable budget airline. ---- Liverpool Solfed has put their full backing behind the campaign headed by John Foley who has been arrested six times for his direct action activism against the airline. His latest court appearance, for protesting on top of John Lennon airport, saw Liverpool Solfed members organise a solidarity demo outside the court. ---- Ryanair’s current policy of recruitment-for-termination is part of the massive exploitation of people who apply to work for the company. As it stands potential cabin crew have to pay a fee of 3000 Euro through an agency to undergo training for Ryanair. As many as 60 people are sacked at any one time after this initial training period, up to 200 people a month. Those who survive are put on a 12 month probationary period on a lower rate of pay than normal cabin crew and Ryanair pocket the difference, as much as £20m a year.

There is also the example of Ryanair sidestepping employment legislation in its French operations, paying employees only according to their own national laws – avoiding the additional social benefit payments that French workers should legally receive.

John Foley has mounted a three year campaign against Ryanair ever since his daughter was scammed by the company as a cabin crew member and he uncovered the systematic exploitation of all potential employees. His trial for the rooftop protest begins on 3rd November.
