Ryanair will begin this Wednesday to negotiate with the German union Verdi a salary increase for its TCP

The union sees «unacceptable» that some workers only receive around 1,000 gross euros

Ryanair will begin on Wednesday to negotiate a salary increase of the 1,000 cabin crew (TCP) with which it has in Germany with the local union Verdi, has informed the German newspaper ‘Handelsblatt’.

«Revenues have to be viable and predictable,» said Verdi federal board member Christine Behle, who has criticized that due to seasonal fluctuations and the fact that the TCPs only charge for the flights they carry out, they give «unacceptable» cases in which the salary is around 1,000 gross euros.

This would be the first negotiation of the ‘low cost’ with union representatives of their TCP after in Spain, after five unsuccessful meetings, negotiations were postponed until September.

Ryanair flight attendants from Spain, Italy, Portugal and Belgium went on strike on 25 and 26 July to demand work improvements and ask the Irish company to apply local rather than Irish legislation at each base, as well as the equalization of the conditions of contracted and subcontracted.
