The Italian pilot Union ANPAC said Tuesday most of its pilots had approved a collective bargaining agreement with Ryanair in the last breakthrough in efforts to suppress the protests of employees throughout Europe.

Most of the more than 300 pilots of the airline Ryanair have approved the transaction, said in a statement ANPAC.

Voting in Italy happens soon after the Irish Union FORSA signed and recommended a mediation agreement to the Irish airline Ryanair pilots, which are currently voting to Approve the agreement.

HR Manager CEO of Ryanair Michael, Eddie Wilson said that he welcomed this is the first KLA from the Italian pilots and hoped that it would be soon followed by a similar agreement covering the Irish pilots.

“We invited our British, German, and Spanish unions to meet with us in the coming days so that we can negotiate and hopefully agree the same experimental class in these other major markets. These agreements demonstrate real progress Ryanair in its negotiations with the pilots and their associations in different markets of the EU,” he said.

Ryanair passengers suffered this summer hundreds of flight cancellations due to protests by pilots over the slow progress in negotiations on collective labour agreements, hurting the average rates for the largest low-cost carrier in Europe.

Irish airline suffered its worst one-day strike in August, after a walk of the pilots in five European countries broke the plans of about 55 000 people during the peak season summer holidays.

What is included in the fifth 24-hour strike of the summer about a quarter of its pilots in the Irish airline Ryanair, which led to propose new negotiations with the mediator’s assistance, which began last week and ended on Thursday after 22-hour session.

Ryanair employs more than 4,000 pilots, about 350 of them in Ireland.
