Following the news that Ryanair pilots in Germany will be staging a 24-hour strike tomorrow, Ryanair has hit back with a warning.

The low-cost carrier has stated that “wildcat” strikes by pilots and cabin crew in Germany would lead to job cuts if they continued.

Ryanair pilots’ union, Vereinigung Cockpit (VC), has been pushing its demands with the Irish carrier on wages and work conditions.

“Despite the clear signal sent with the strike in early August there’s still standstill at the negotiation table,” Ingolf Schumacher, VC’s pay negotiator, had said in a statement.

Ryanair Chief Marketing Officer Kenny Jacobs had earlier said about the strike: “These are wildcat strikes designed to cause maximum disruption to our customers and maximum damage to the Ryanair business,” he told journalists in a news conference in Frankfurt.
