BALPA response to Ryanair potential job losses

BALPA General Secretary Brian Strutton said:

“There has been no warning or consultation by Ryanair about the 3000 potential job losses and this is miserable news for pilots and staff who have taken pay cuts under the Government job retention scheme.

“Ryanair seems to have done a u-turn on its ability to weather the COVID storm.

“Aviation workers are now facing a tsunami of job losses. The U.K. Government has to stop daydreaming and keep to the promise made by the Chancellor on 17 March to help airlines or this industry, vital  to the U.K. economy, will be devastated.”
