Unions issued a list of changes they wanted to their terms and conditions on Wednesday, including demand that all contracts at the airline be subject to local law rather than Irish law.

Unions also warned that further industrial action might follow if Ryanair refuses to improve working conditions.

Earlier this week about 100 Ryanair pilots based in Ireland announced plans to stage a walk out on July 12.
