Ryanair staff threaten 'the BIGGEST strike action the company has ever seen'

This doesn't look good at all.

Ryanair staff have threatened to strike, in the what is being called "the biggest strike action the company has ever seen."

Passengers of the airline may face even more travel chaos following a statement released by cabin crew in five countries today.

It comes from unions in Italy, Portugal, Belgium, Spain and the Netherlands who are insisting that their work contracts should be drawn up in their own countries rather than in Ireland, which is the system they go by now.

The statement read:

"On September 20, the shareholders will have the opportunity to place Ryanair on the right track and ensure a long and sustainable model more suitable to the Europe of the 21st century by capturing the right talents to bring Ryanair to the level that we all want to see it.

"If the company leadership is not willing to make the changes necessary, (the workers) will have no choice but to respond with the biggest strike action the company has ever seen."

Cabin crews from the five countries are aiming to take mass strike action during the last week of September if their needs aren't met.

A final decision will be made by the group on Thursday, 20 September.
