Ryanair's CABIN CREW have it bad? Wait 'till you hear about their PILOTS.. RYANAIR EXPLOIT...

Staff memo warns that signing letter airing safety fears would be ‘gross misconduct’

 Ryanair pilots have been warned not to sign a letter to airline regulators expressing concern that the airline’s employment practices could jeopardise passenger safety.

In a memo staff were told they would be guilty of “gross misconduct” and “liable for dismissal” if they signed the letter to the Irish Aviation Authority that regulates Ryanair. The letter was drawn up by the Ryanair Pilot Group (RPG), which represents captains and co-pilots working for the airline but is not recognised by the company.
It warned that the “confusing, uncertain and unpredictable employment situation” at Ryanair was becoming “an increasing distraction in daily flight operations”. It added that it was causing “stress and worry” for pilots and had implications for safety.
Ryanair responded to the letter by warning that any pilot who signed it could be dismissed. “If the Ryanair Pilot Group want to make inaccurate or false claims about non-safety issues they are free to do so, but we will not allow Ryanair’s safety to be defamed by this pilots’ union,” the airline’s chief pilot Ray Conway wrote.
“Please note that any Ryanair pilot who participates in this so-called safety petition will be guilty of gross misconduct and will be liable for dismissal.”
The RPG organised the letter amid concerns that the airline was making the majority of its pilots self-employed. Under the scheme, pilots sign a contract binding them to fly exclusively for Ryanair – but not as employees.
The pilots are then paid for the work they do but have to pay for all their own expenses, including uniforms, identity cards, transport and hotel accommodation. The contracted pilots have no pension scheme or medical insurance unless they set it up themselves.
One Ryanair pilot said that the company was protected because they could claim that pilots had a legal and moral obligation not to fly if they do not think they are capable. But they added: “People are human and if you’re not going to be paid [if you don’t fly] you might think ‘I can do this, I’m fine. I’ll just get on with it’. You should not have a safety culture based on fear.”
David Learmount, operations and safety editor of Flight International magazine and an expert on aviation, said:“Ryanair are pushing their luck on human factors when they employ pilots like a warlord employs mercenaries. There is the worry that if they are self-employed that might place additional pressures on them to work even if, for any number of reasons, they might not feel entirely fit to do so.”
The RPG has now written to the Irish Aviation Authority, which regulates Ryanair, to express its concerns over the memo. “[We are] extremely concerned by some of the rhetoric used in this memo and also by the implicit attempt to constrain the reporting of safety related concerns,” they said in a letter to Kevin Humphreys, Director of Safety Regulation.
“Voicing concerns about safety and petitioning any government agency about those concerns is legal, necessary and in line with every pilot’s legal obligations to report those kinds of concerns when they arise.”
The Independent revealed the poor conditions faced by Ryanair’s cabin crew, who are made to take three months unpaid leave a year, not paid to be on call, and have to pay £360 for their uniform.
In response to the latest allegations, a Ryanair spokesman said: “We do not comment on anonymous, unsigned letters from internet trolls funded by the European Cockpit Association.” He added it was “rubbish” that contract pilots might feel under pressure to work even if they were ill.
“Contract pilots regularly report in sick when they feel they are not fit to fly and we maintain a daily roster for standby pilots for precisely this reason,” he said. “This false claim was previously investigated and dismissed by the Irish Aviation Authority.”

John said,
A must read for all Pilots wishing to join Europe's Greatest Exploiter of Young People ''RYANAIR..

Today Monday 20th May 2013 a protest took place at Trinity Mirror Group office of the Liverpool Echo Old Hall Street Liverpool.
The purpose of this protest which will take place each day this week was to ask the Liverpool Echo editor Alistair Machray,why he continues to support Ryanair's Exploitation of young Probationary Cabin Crew.. Alistair Machray's priority is revenue's from Ryanair's PR SPIN.
Let me try to explain the last few days news regarding Ryanair, Europe's Greatest Exploiters of young people wishing a career as cabin crew.
On Wednesday 15th May 2013 Ryanair paid the Liverpool Echo for a PR Spin story regarding a 18 year old from Merseyside who Ryanair say is the youngest pilot in the UK...
Ryanair had front page plus a large part inside.Congratulations to Ryan who did so well getting his wings at a very young age.

Merseyside teen qualifies as one of the UK's youngest pilots for Ryanair 

Full story below.

This story above is a PR Spin Ryanair used with the help of the Liverpool Echo as they new The Independent story was about to break the very next day.

Thursday 17th May, 20 year old Sophie from Liverpool Merseyside had a large article in The Independent telling of the Exploitation of young probationary cabin crew at Ryanair, which was so important it was mentioned in detail  in the house of commons by Wavertree labour MP Luciana Berger.

On Saturday 19th May the Daily Mirror (Trinity Mirror Group) who own Liverpool Echo run a article regarding Ryanair's exploitation mentioned in the house of commons by MP Luciana Berger.

Full Story below.

http://www.mirror.co.uk/money/city-news/ryanair-accused-exploiting-staff-labour-1895731

This article above from the Daily Mirror (Trinity Mirror Group) was published in every region except Merseyside were Sophie is from.

This is what Ryanair do when stories are run regarding employment at Ryanair.They use the power of money to pay some main stream newspapers,like the Daily Mirror/Liverpool Echo who are so willing to except even if it is damaging young people in their coverage region.

LIVERPOOL ECHO ARE GUILTY OF HELPING RYANAIR TO CONTINUE EXPLOITING YOUNG PEOPLE...

A letter of complaint will be sent to Mr Machray plus the Press Complaints Commission.

Since 2008 Ryanairdontcare Campaign  have fought Ryanair and companies helping Ryanair exploit by way of PROTEST which will continue..

I would also like to thank Sophie from Liverpool for standing up to exploiters Ryanair and your action last week has gained so much publicity telling the real story of exploitation at Ryanair that recruitment will start to fall....

THANK YOU Sophie......

RYANAIR NEWS
Carrot and stick? Smoke and mirrors? This lovely and eloquently written letter from the Deputy Director of
Flight Operations highlights their desperation, the topics mentioned in this professional letter are all hot topics
on REPA over the last few weeks. Is it a coincidence increasing numbers on REPA and a new IALPA initiative
coincides with management suddenly talking about issues the ERC “suggested”, after four years?

Q1 FIGURES
The Q1 figures have been released and we have made a staggering

figures, not in Ryanair. Friends who have left for the desert, in search of better pay and respect recently
received a $6000

!140 million PROFIT. Is it not time that weBONUS plus a PAY RISE for their efforts, and some of them have still to start their (free) type
PAY- FREEZE OVER:
Mr. O’Leary has been kind enough to increase his own bonus this year, by a whopping 83%, bringing his total
pay to over 1 million euros, according to the Irish Examiner business section. This is separate from his 187
million euros worth of shares. “InBrief” and REPA members believe it is time the people on the ground who
produce this profit should get acknowledged and rewarded. Whilst some people might believe the recent memo
about pay increases for the Brookfield Captains an indepth study shows the truth behing the figures.

For those close to retirement
thinking “I’m out of here
soon so I do not care”. You
have relied on previous pilots

happen and it will happen but
this awful attitude of being
resigned to accepting
Ryanairs practises will not
help.

RYANAIR BROOKFIELD.....''GUILTY''...............PROFIT BEFORE SAFETY...

AIRLINES MUST END SELF-EMPLOYMENT OF PILOTS

 
In an attempt to off-load risk a growing number of employers are unfairly forcing pilots to register themselves as self-employed. This should be a concern to every passenger and every taxpayer yet the authorities seem unwilling to intervene, according to the British Airline Pilots’ Association (BALPA).

BALPA General Secretary, Jim McAuslan, said, ‘Like many trade unions we are concerned about workers who to all intents and purposes are employees but are being forced to register as self-employed. This gets the company out of having to provide holiday pay, redundancy cover, sick pay and leaves individuals fearing that they could be laid off at any moment.’

These individuals are essentially employees and the courts are slowing waking up to this. In the recent Supreme Court ruling in the Autoclenz Ltd v Belcher case the court ruled that the presence of a substitution clause did not in fact prove that there was not a “contract of employment” and many other considerations needed to be taken into account. Previously a substitution clause would require the self-employed person to supply someone else if they could not undertake the day’s work, but this was not what happened in reality.

BALPA will be encouraging fellow trade unions at the TUC Congress in London to use this judgment to launch a major attack on the abuse by employers of self-employment status.

Jim McAuslan went on: ‘BALPA’s concerns go much wider than employment status, however. We believe the practise goes against Civil Aviation Authority regulations which state that the employment of “freelance” flight crews may only be allowed in “exceptional circumstances”. In some airlines the exception is fast-becoming the norm and this needs to be addressed. BALPA will be pressing for this matter to be looked at by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) which sets world-wide standards for aviation safety.

‘As well as a safety concern the use of bogus self-employed status is leading to a loss to the Exchequer. This is aggravated when airlines insist that people are not only self-employed but have to register off-shore to secure employment. BALPA knows of many individuals who have had to go along with this fa├žade because they are desperate for work and are given no real choice.

‘This approach is bad for jobs, bad for safety and bad for the country and the Government should act now.’

  

John Said,
Thank you BALPA.......

MICHAEL O'LEARY ABUSING SO MANY...........SPEAKING ABOUT RYANAIR EXPLOITERS ...


I'D SELL off the ESB, Aer Lingus and RTE to turn the economy around, Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary told the Herald today.
The airline chief would also bring everyone into the tax net -- including those on the dole, who he would tax at 10pc.
Mr O'Leary also says the number of TDs should be slashed to 58, the Senate abolished and the "public sector pension scams" brought to an end.
However, he admits he doesn't get everything right, being in negative equity on his Raglan Road, Dublin 4 home he bought at "the top of the bloody cycle".
The outspoken chief executive dismissed Aer Lingus as an "irrelevancy" and described "public sector broadcasting" as "horse sh**"
"In a European context there are four airlines that matter, Lufthansa, Air France, BA/Iberia and Ryanair," he tells the Herald in an exclusive interview.
Ireland has "huge tourism potential" but it is not being exploited, he added.
"Everything has come down but access capacity has been destroyed by the Department of Transport, the DAA and the travel tax," he said.
Mr O'Leary considers much of the public sector to be "rotten to the core".
He said the country's former top civil servant Dermot McCarthy should have been sacked for "10 years of abject failure" instead of receiving a €600,000 retirement payment.
In an echo of Fine Gael's pre-election five-point plan, Mr O'Leary outlined his own remedies for the ailing Irish economy.
He stormed: "I would slash public spending by €20bn in three years.
"There are 1,000 quangos that cost about €6bn a year, I would close every single one of them next Tuesday, starting with FAS, which costs €1bn a year.
"Unemployment would rise, but most of them are useless anyway, but they all would have to get jobs somewhere else."

John Said,
As you can see O'Leary wording....SCAMS and EXPLOITED are the two main things inside Ryanair.
O'Leary has no Respect or  Dignity for  Ryanair Crew,Unemployed he said are useless, terminated Ryanair cabin crew are Unemployed as a direct result of Michael O'Leary and David Bonderman scammers.......Do not understand why the Herald interview a abuser of so many Young People all over Europe,they need to talk to RyanairDontCare Campaign....

BROOKFIELD RYANAIR CONTRACT.....DECLAN DOONEY HAS FULL POCKETS....CORRUPT OR NOT ???? SAFETY IS NOT PRIORITY AT RYANAIR ''PROFIT IS''


RYANAIR PILOT SAID:

There are many implications relating to the Brookfied Aviation contractors associated with Ryanair, some of which may not be obvious to the general public and the fare paying customers of Ryanair.
The whole reason that Brookfied Aviation was set up was so that Ryanair could shy away from it’s social welfare contributions as stated above and so that the pilots would have no employment rights. The manager of Brookfield Aviation is the ex-head of Ryanair HR, Declan Dooney. Mr. Dooney left Ryanair to set up the desired pilot contract workforce for Ryanair and this has grown to a massive scale due to the percentage of contractor pilots currently in Ryanair, about 65%. Various government bodies around Europe (excluding the UK) have questioned the legality of this practice and this is why the pilots are now forced to set up limited companies in Dublin with one of three Brookfield selected accountants (who take a mandatory 3% from their salaries) so that they can pay their taxes in Ireland, this is how they pacified the Irish Government. The limited company idea is only a temporary reprieve for them because Brookfield is only enforcing the new terms onto new pilots and allowing the existing contractors to remain on any scheme that they wish, even when their contracts are being renewed. There are hundreds of Brookfield pilots either not paying tax at all or paying through offshore dubious schemes in the IOM, Jersey, etc. In many cases these are people who live and work in the UK, so the UK government is missing out on a lot of tax and appears to be less interested than many other European counties, despite the fact that we are supposed to be cracking down on all illegal tax schemes.
So, the financial effect is the more obvious but there are more important effects to. The pilots are paid by the flying hour and their volume of work is totally dependant on the rostering department of Ryanair giving them some work. Often pilots are not being paid much money, especially in the winter months. Due to inconsistent income and pilots who are running into financial difficulties, often unable to pay their mortgages etc. result = PILOT STRESS.
The pilots are NOT allowed to seek work elsewhere because when they are not rostered for work they are on standby for the company to use them at a moments notice if they wish, this is every airline’s operational requirement but all other airlines pay a salary for that privilege. Some pilots in these winter months are flying two may be three days per month which means that they are earning less than £1000 per month, result = PILOT STRESS.
There is no sick pay, so human nature is to go to work when one is not really up to it, I’ve seen people in work very ill indeed. Despite the fact that the pilots are not employed by Ryanair they have to provide an official doctor’s sick note for any sickness whatsoever.
Brookfield pilots are often rostered to work from another European base at very short notice, they have to pay all associated travel and hotel costs themselves upfront even if they haven’t been earning any money for several months and therefore can’t afford to do so, result = PILOT STRESS. When rostered to fly from another base the days spent getting to and from that base are known in the industry as “duty days” There are certain legal flight time limitations in place to prevent pilots being fatigued and therefore not safe to fly, one of those limitations is the number consecutive duty days in a certain period and another is the length of each duty day. Ryanair refuses to accept that the days spent travelling are in fact duty days, but it clearly states in the official legal documentation that any days spent travelling at the behest of the company are “duty days” This can easily be conformed with the Civil Aviation Authority. result = PILOT STRESS and FLIGHT SAFETY ISSUE.
You may be wondering why I and many others put up with it, its because there is nothing else available in the UK which is why many UK pilots are now seeking employment in the Middle and Far East.
All in all I have used the phrases PILOT STRESS and FLIGHT SAFETY ISSUE where appropriate but PILOT STRESS is in itself a FLIGHT SAFETY ISSUE so the hidden effect of the illegal contractor pilots and dictatorship attitude is FLIGHT SAFETY and should be addressed by the Civil Aviation Authority and The Irish Aviation Authority before it’s too late, its unsafe! The Irish Aviation Authority appears to be entirely disinterested in the wrong doings of Ryanair due to its very close relationship with Mr O’Leary and his fellow directors.
If any journalist were to challenge Ryanair on these issues I’m sure that they would refuse to comment because this is all based on fact and they couldn’t possibly justify any of it.

John said,
This is so wrong............IAA need to do their job and stop turning a blind eye.........Ryanair Crew need help ''NOW''.................

RYANAIR SHAREHOLDERS WARNED...CORONERS REPORT INTO RYANAIR RIP PILOT

The death of a real important pilot at Ryanair a few months ago must never be forgotten.
The coroners report will not turn a blind eye to exploitation of crew at Ryanair and all shareholders need to know the truth.......David Bonderman and Michael O'Leary are not only guilty of cheating shareholders with their Isle of Man bank account but Guilty of contributing in the  death of one of their pilots.

STEPHEN McNAMARA RYANAIR'S PUPPET..... mcnamara@ryanair.com

 

OFT statement on its investigation of Ryanair’s minority shareholding in Aer Lingus

airplane 112/10    29 October 2010
The OFT has today started a merger investigation into Ryanair Holdings plc's (Ryanair's) acquisition of a minority shareholding in Aer Lingus Group plc (Aer Lingus). Ryanair currently owns 29.82 per cent of Aer Lingus.
The OFT's investigation will have regard to two main questions:
(i) whether the OFT has jurisdiction under the Enterprise Act 2002 to review the acquisition as a relevant merger situation. This will include considering whether Ryanair has the ability to exercise material influence over the commercial policy of Aer Lingus (see Note 4)  as well as whether the OFT is within the statutory time period available to it to investigate the acquisition and, if need be, refer it to the Competition Commission (see Note 5) and
(ii) if so, whether the acquisition raises competition issues that give rise to a duty to refer the acquisition to the Competition Commission under the 'substantial lessening of competition' test set out in the Enterprise Act 2002.
After initially acquiring a minority stake in Aer Lingus in 2006, Ryanair mounted a public bid for the entire shareholding in Aer Lingus in October 2006. The European Commission investigated the bid and decided to prohibit it in June 2007.
Aer Lingus subsequently appealed against the European Commission's decision not to order Ryanair to divest its existing minority stake in Aer Lingus. In July 2010, the European General Court ruled that the European Commission did not have the ability to require divestment of minority shareholdings that do not confer 'decisive influence' for the purposes of the EC Merger Regulation. Separately, Ryanair also appealed, unsuccessfully, to the General Court on the grounds that the European Commission should not have prohibited its public bid for the entire shareholding in Aer Lingus.
Given the termination of the European Commission investigation and related litigation, the OFT is now considering the acquisition.
The OFT has written to Ryanair seeking information and its views on the acquisition. In line with its normal practice, the OFT has today invited comments from third parties on the acquisition, to be submitted by 12 November.
NOTES  
  1. Ryanair Holdings plc currently owns 29.82 per cent of Aer Lingus Group plc. Ryanair initially acquired a stake in Aer Lingus in late 2006. It mounted a public bid for the entire shareholding in Aer Lingus in October 2006. The European Commission investigated the public bid and decided to prohibit it in June 2007. The General Court ruled in July 2010 that the European Commission does not have the ability to examine or require divestment of minority shareholdings that do not confer 'decisive influence' for the purposes of the EC Merger Regulation - see Note 4.
  2. The reference test - the OFT has a duty to make a reference to the Competition Commission if it believes that it is or may be the case that a relevant merger situation has been created and the creation of that situation has resulted, or may be expected to result, in a substantial lessening of competition within any market or markets in the United Kingdom for goods or services.
  3. Under the Enterprise Act 2002 a relevant merger situation is created if two or more enterprises have ceased to be distinct enterprises; and the value of the turnover in the United Kingdom of the enterprise being taken over exceeds £70 million; or as a result of the transaction, in relation to the supply of goods or services of any description, a 25 per cent share of supply in the UK (or a substantial part thereof) is created or enhanced.
  4. Under the Enterprise Act 2002 the OFT may treat as a relevant merger situation a minority shareholding where that shareholding gives its owner the ability materially to influence the behaviour and policy of the target company including the target company's strategic direction and commercial objectives. As stated in the OFT's Mergers - jurisdictional and procedural guidance (OFT527, paragraph 3.15) this is a lower level of control than the 'decisive influence' test used by the European Commission under the EC Merger Regulation.
  5. Under the Enterprise Act 2002 the OFT is able to refer to the Competition Commission completed relevant mergers within four months of the merger's completion or from the time material facts about the merger were made public. However, the Enterprise Act 2002 provides that the duty to refer applies outside this four month timetable when the reference could not have been made earlier because of anything done under or in accordance with the EC Merger Regulation.
Ryanair Holdings PLC - RYANAIR RESPONDS TO THE OFT's "MERGER UPDATE"
Thursday 1 September 2011

Ryanair's Stephen McNamara said: mcnamara@ryanair.com  ....
"We are surprised that the OFT continues to waste time and resources on a failed merger offer between two non UK companies, some five years after the offer was withdrawn, and some four years after the EU Commission prohibited the original offer but confirmed that Ryanair had neither de jure nor de facto control over Aer Lingus.
This OFT investigation sets a damaging precedent for future UK mergers, as it appears that the OFT now intends to second guess and become involved in mergers up to 9 years after the transaction, only once all EU appeals have been completed. We believe that this investigation is out of time and we trust that the Court of Appeal will share our view and put an end to this unnecessary investigation."

RYANAIRDONTCARE CAMPAIGN'S JOHN LENNON AIRPORT ROOP TOP PROTEST 2011.....





JOHN LENNON AIRPORT ROOF TOP PROTEST AGAINST EXPLOITORS ''RYANAIR''

John Lennon Airport this week saw the latest protest from RyanairDontCare Campaign against Ryanair SCAMMERS,which was a NEWS BLACK OUT.
The day started at 11.15am on 23rd August 2011 with Mr John Foley,founder of RyanairDontCare Campaign who gained access to the airport with 2 ladders and started to climb on to the roof of the building.
Within Minutes the Protest banners were in place and no Police in sight.It was over one hour before Police arrived even though 4 Ryanair aircraft crew were looking at the banners.

I was asked by Merseyside Police how long i was planning to protest to which i said,as long as i could stay up here.I was never asked WHY was i protesting there which was strange but maybe the banners said it all.
I was never told to come down by any police officer.
After 15 hours,about 2am i was cold and tiered and fell asleep and was woken up at 4am by Inspector Ruddock who had climbed onto the roof through a escape hatch,hand cuffed me and to be honest nearly gave me a heart attack.I must say Officer Ruddock was very professional and did release the hand cuffs whilst i was still on the roof.He did ask me not to resist which i did comply with as these two officers had put their safety at risk to end this protest.Inspector Ruddock had met me before on my last roof top protest in Liverpool. http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/liverpool-news/local-news/2010/02/09/man-s-rooftop-protest-against-ryanair-on-top-of-speke-s-crowne-plaza-hotel-100252-25798364/
so he new these issues were real and the aim of the protest was peaceful.

What was interesting was after i came down  Mr Terry Sloan Duty Manager at John Lennon Airport confronted John Foley,................Liverpool John Lennon Airport is a threat to safety and security because of Peel Holdings and Ryanair details to follow on the next post......

I was kept in police custody for 28 hours and taken to court as the police objected to bail.My Solicitor from MJP Solicitors in Liverpool was great and got me conditional bail..Next court date 8th September 2011.
A news black out from Liverpool Echo,which was expected and local radio was in place as a way of turning a blind eye to the Abuse of our Children by Ryanair  ''MONEY SPEAKS......So no more.....

A court date is in place and a Not Guilty Plea was placed at Liverpool Magistrates Court...

A message to Mr Bonderman and Mr O'leary, you tried to stop the shareholder banner being seen at your head office protest 3 weeks ago, a NEWS BLACK out on the latest roof top protest stooped the banner being seen,but guess what LOOK below.
John Said...
Doomed to fail ''MICHAEL'' How far would you go for your children.......ALL THE WAY....AGM September 2011.Next...............
