Management at Ryanair and union representatives are due to meet on Tuesday, after a proposed strike was suspended.

IMPACT announced on Sunday it had suspended a planned one-day strike of some Irish-based pilots for Wednesday December 20th.

It comes after company management agreed to recognise the union as the representative of the pilots.

The union has agreed to meet management on Tuesday evening, but says "it is available to meet sooner".

The union has also asked management to release its Ryanair pilot representatives to prepare for and attend the meeting.

IMPACT says it is looking forward "to establishing a positive relationship with Ryanair company management".

It adds that it hopes the suspension of industrial action would remove any uncertainty for passengers intending to travel on Wednesday.

On Sunday, the carrier also confirmed that the German pilot union agreed to meetings on Wednesday December 20th.

While the Portuguese pilot union is set to meet Ryanair on Thursday December 21st.

And the British and Italian pilots’ unions have agreed to meet in early January.

On Friday, Ryanair did a major u-turn when it agreed to recognise unions for the first time in its history.
