Question for written answer P-003507-19
to the Commission
Rule 138
Isabel García Muñoz (S&D) , Estrella Durá Ferrandis (S&D) , Alicia Homs Ginel (S&D)

 Subject:  Dismissal of Ryanair pilots in favour of pilots on suspect freelance contracts
 Answer in writing 

Ryanair has transferred its office operations in Poland, Czechia and Bulgaria to its subsidy Buzz, which obliges its pilots and cabin crews to work under suspect freelance contracts.

What is more, according to press reports, Ryanair is planning to re-open the bases that it is closing in Spain. It was running them with crews on contracts subject to Spanish law, but now it will, allegedly, run them with freelance Buzz pilots instead.

The EU’s Charter of Fundamental Rights and the European pillar of social rights provide for social rights for workers in the EU.

What supervisory and monitoring measures are the European labour agency and the Commission taking to keep track of this situation and ensure that the EU’s social legislation is upheld, particularly the provisions on protecting workers, transferring companies and fair competition in the European aviation market?
