Nearly 1/4 of Ryanair pilots have voted to take strike action on Tuesday 20th December at a time that will cause maximum disruption to Christmas travellers.

As yet, there are no details of flights affected and Ryanair is in negotiations to prevent the strike from happening, agreeing to the demands to recognise pilot unions.

Michael O’Leary has refused to recognise trade unions throughout the 32-year history of Ryanair, and has been quoted as saying he would rather cut off his own hand than recognise unions..
