Lusa - Business News - Portugal: Ryanair cabin crew called to meeting on Friday to discuss future




Lisbon, Aug. 13,2020 (Lusa) - Crewlink, the company that manages cabin crew for Ryanair, a low-cost airline based in Ireland, has sent letters to workers based in Lisbon who have declined to be taken on as staff on the terms offered, calling a meeting for Friday to discuss their employment situation, according to documents that Lusa has seen.
The letters are being sent to workers who have refused to join Ryanair staff on basic pay that is below Portugal's national minimum wage and who have not indicated preferred bases abroad, so failing to register to obtain documentation giving access to these bases.
"Failure to obtain or retain the identification card may result in their being removed from employment and their employment being terminated," reads the letter sent to workers who have refused to join Ryanair on the terms offered or relocate abroad.
Friday's meeting "to discuss this matter further" is to be held virtually, the letter states, saying that this is because of the Covid-19 pandemic, although company officials "would prefer to meet in person" with the workers concerned.
More than 30 Crewlink workers, serving as crew on Ryanair planes, have been and are being asked to join the staff with basic salaries below the minimum wage, with the alternative of relocating abroad as early as September.
The letter sent out on Thursday is addressed to the workers based in Lisbon in this situation, citing their "failure to communicate their registration ... before their transfer ... on 1 September, despite having been instructed to do so on two separate occasions."
The base for each worker is now to be selected by the company on the basis of its operational needs, where workers have not responded to a request to indiciate a basic preference, to start work on 1 September.
Previous documentation seen by Lusa indicates that workers are being given two to three days to specify their preference, and are being refused requests for relocation to Portugal or to postpone the move abroad.
"As you declined to confirm what your preferred base would be, your new base was selected based on operational needs, according to your employment contract," can be read in one of the letters sent by Crewlink that Lusa had previously seen, and which indicated to the worker their actual place of work from September 1.
According to documentation, workers for Crewlink, a temporary employment agency whose only client is Ryanair, received letters from human resources informing that a "limited number" of crew members would be invited to join Ryanair. If that offer were rejected, the letters stated, the workers - based in Ponta Delgada, Lisbon and Porto - would be relocated to various destinations in the Crewlink network in the UK and Ireland from 1 September.
According to an exchange of documentation between one worker and the company that Lusa has seen, given that worker's refusal to sign a contract with Ryanair offering a basic salary of €588 gross - as against the €635 enshrined in law as Portugal's minimum wage - the company suggested relocation to the UK (at its East Midlands or Southend bases) on 1 September. The proffered contract also includes a clause stating that the worker "has no claims/credits against the company" as of that date.
According to figures from the union representing cabin crew in Portugal, the SNPVAC, there are three workers in these circumstances from the company's base in Ponta Delgada, in the Azores, 14 in Lisbon and about 15 in Porto who have already been contacted.
