🇧🇪 After eight years of legal struggle, the Belgian Court ruled that local labour law applies to Ryanair workers, if it is more favourable to the workers than Irish law.

🇪🇺 A victory for aircrews throughout Europe, as this judgement took its way through the European Court of Justice, which in 2017 decided that disputes over a cabin crew member’s contract of employment fall within the jurisdiction of the courts of the country from which they carry out their duties – not those of a country such as Ireland which the airline might choose to suit its own interests.

A victory for aircrews? I really think that it is much more than that. Many other workers are going to be able to use that decision and one important sector are going to be the proffesional drivers. It all depends by the arguments from the ECJ decision. That is why I'd like to read it.

WOW, that is really nice. Why it had to be so hard when the law it is so clear? Just because the companies have the money and the workers don't. I'll go to read the entire ECJ decision. Do you have the number of the ECJ decision ?

🇪🇺✍️🇪🇺☑️🇪🇺 The #EUelections2019 are coming! On 23-26 May, EU citizens will decide which politicians will represent them in the European Parliament. Union members should get out to vote, and choose parties who will defend working people. Remember, the EU is responsible for a lot of the rules that govern the transport sector and working conditions in Europe.

For over a year, the #FairTransport campaign has been leading the fight against social dumping in transport. Now several candidates for the EU elections have promised to support the positive proposals in our Fair Transport manifesto.
