Ryanair has fired six members of the crew who have been based in Portugal, accused of having published a "false photograph" lying on the ground, indicating their working conditions, it was told Wednesday with & Company.
A "serious impairment". "Six Porto crew members were dismissed on Monday, November 5 (…) for serious misconduct, after holding a fake" to believe "they had been forced to sleep" on the Crew Hall Malaga & # 39; (southern Spain), the low cost airline in a statement. Ryanair, who had been stuck for months in conflict with employees in many countries, said that his reputation had suffered this issue, which had argued.
Storm … On October 14, when storms blocked air traffic, about 20 members of the Portuguese crew had to spend the night at Malaga airport. First in the Ryanair crew room, with just a few chairs in line with the unions, then in the VIP room is usually dedicated to customers. Then workers placed a picture on the ground. Posted on Twitter and claims that the workers "slept on crew room", had been challenging the control.
… and a "full" hotel, justifying Ryanair. "Unfortunately, all the hotels were full in Malaga," says Peter Bellew's operations director. "The storm caused huge damage to Portugal and then the crew moved (from the crew room to the VIP room)." "We all know that Malaga (…) and the Costa del Sol offer a huge offer, especially in October, during the low season," said Spanish trade union Sticpla, in a statement .
Union calls "the right to escape". For Luciana Passo, president of the Portuguese trade union SNPVAC, this controversial picture was primarily "exposure to escape to the right". "There were 24 crew members in a room with 8 chairs, some of them decided to show their digitity by lying on the floor because the other chairs were occupied, and one person, who was not part of my crew, publish the picture on social networks and they are about to be fired! "he said, according to Lusa Portiwgal agency.
