Ryanair to take pilots' union to court.
Low-cost airline Ryanair has initiated court proceedings against an Irish pilots' union in an effort to stop what it claims is an organised campaign of harassment and intimidation being conducted through a website.
In 2004 the Irish Airline Pilots Association (IALPA) and its British counterpart formed a group to represent pilots at Ryanair in an effort to increase trade union membership at the company. The president of IALPA has rejected suggestions that union officials engaged in the bullying, victimisation or intimidation of anybody, reported Reuters.
The two pilots' unions claim that Ryanair is anti-union, while the carrier says it recognises employees' rights to join a union but most of its employees would prefer to negotiate directly with the company.
