DUBLIN (Reuters) – The British Airline Pilots Association (BALPA) said on Wednesday that it expected industrial unrest at Ryanair across Europe to continue for the foreseeable future.

“The industrial unrest in Ryanair across Europe and among pilots and cabin crew is, in my opinion, likely to continue for the foreseeable future,” BALPA General Secretary Brian Strutton said in a statement.

The union also urged Ryanair shareholders to replace CEO Michael O‚ÄôLeary and Chairman David Bonderman at the company’s annual shareholder meeting on Thursday.
