Ryanair lays off 75 employees to keep Faro base open

Ryanair forced to pay Portuguese staff according to Portuguese law

Lowcost airline Ryanair has seen Lisbon’s Court of Appeal rule in favour of cabin staff whose rights have been ‘constantly violated’ for over a decade because Ryanair refused to recognise Portuguese Law.

From now on, cabin staff will receive holiday and Christmas subsidies, maternity/ paternity leave and other employment rights.

Said union SNPVAC, it took a long time coming, but this is exactly the outcome staff have been pushing for.
