Single Pilot Body EERC is the “route to go”
Dear Ryanair members,
ANPAC has been involved in the last weeks by deeply thinking of what the best actions
could be taken in order to take you all forward in the strong moment you’re living.
As understood and shared with you during the meetings we held so far, this is a very special moment and a unique opportunity to send a message that your Company needs
The malpractice to divide the bases, playing one off the other with the aim of weakening
and overriding your legitimate requests and to avoid negotiating with one pilot voice
needs a strong and unique reply:
Local National Collective Contracts for all Ryanair pilot around the network
Your Company just sent a letter promising a lot but, as already occurred in the past, have they all come to pass? Not really… A lot of previous deals from Ryanair were not always
honoured. Ryanair is sending offers only to single bases. Nobody knows what is being (or
what will be) offered to other bases.
ERCs have done a remarkable and substantial job and represent the natural structure for leading each base single voice. A close coordination between all the ERCs in the network is the best way to build up a real and effective structure with the ability to spread a single voice for a single pilot body to achieve results.
An European ERC organization (EERC) is the right idea to get the way forward
ANPAC sincerely welcome the EERC as a perfect coordination mean of interaction with the Company with the full support and strong background of the ECA member
Associations in each country.
We strongly believe that the EERC can take on a greater steering role in the work of the
EU group by representing the entire pilot body and provide a single guidance for the entire group, in addition it is definitely useful in the field of the communication to go
through with one single and unified voice. (i.e. answers to Company letters).
This structure represents the possibility for individual members to report threats (i.e. if they don’t accept poor deals with the Company), any forms of intimidation shall be reported to your Professional Association and to the EERC to make them aware and
understand the full extent of the problem and to develop a plan to counter it.
On the ERCs side, should they be forced to talk/negotiate with the Company they shall
inform the EERC and when attending they should only listen without agreeing any term,
but committing to bring the Company position back to the base pilots.
ERCs then inform the base pilots of the meeting outcome but emphasising that no
agreement was reached and report the outcome to the EERC.
It is crucial that NO agreements are being done by any base
Your membership representation level is strongly increasing all around Europe
Finally we recommend that all pilots transmit his or her view to the EERC through email
Meetings will continue to be held in the coming weeks.
