Cansel Kiziltepe: SPD MP accompanies Ryanair stewardess to scare-date


A machine of the Irish low-cost airline Ryanair landing in Frankfurt am Main. The Kreuzberg member of parliament Cansel Kiziltepe (SPD) wants to support a flight attendant of Ryanair on Tuesday at a very unpleasant appointment. Kiziltepe, since 2013 for the SPD in the Bundestag and deputy fiscal spokeswoman for her group , plans to visit the headquarters of the low-cost airline in the Irish capital Dublin on Tuesday afternoon. This confirmed the MP to the Tagesspiegel on Monday evening. She will travel with a flight attendant from the airline who was quoted for the Dublin call. An exact reason was not called her, said employee Janina Schneider *. After discussions with colleagues, however, she expects to receive her notice.

She was only half a year with Ryanair, in two weeks, their contract would be terminated, Schneider said. In the meantime, she had to get sick three times for a total of seven days. She also participated in strike action. For experience, Ryanair shows little understanding for this. Therefore, Schneider’s concern is to be fired. “They’re always finding new people so they can just throw us away,” she said.

Complaints about “temporary workers in chain contracts”

Representative Kiziltepe has regularly met with Ryanair staff as a “godmother” of the Verdi union in recent months. These are currently dealing with their employer a fierce conflict. It is about things that are taken for granted in most German Airlines: Regulated working hours, employment contracts that do not feel like fake self-employment, a universal collective agreement, the approval of works councils.
