EU tells Ryanair to meet EU rules now, ahead of strike

BRUSSELS, Sept 26 (Reuters) - European Employment Commissioner Marianne Thyssen told Ryanair chief Michael O’Leary on Wednesday that the Irish airline must respect EU rules and give workers contracts according to where they live.

Thyssen told the Ryanair chief executive that EU rules on employment for mobile air crews were clear - based not on the flag of the aircraft, but the place where workers left in the morning and returned in the evening.

“Respecting the law is not something over which workers should have to negotiate and not something that can be postponed to a later date,” Thyssen said in a statement. (Reporting by Philip Blenkinsop; editing by Foo Yun Chee)
