DUBLIN (Reuters) – Seven trade unions representing Ryanair <RYA.I> cabin crew in five countries threatened on Friday to hold a strike in late September unless the airline agrees to change working conditions.

The unions representing cabin crew in Italy, Portugal, Belgium, Spain and the Netherlands said in a statement following a meeting in Rome that they would make a decision on whether to strike by Sept. 13.

A representative of Portugal’s SNPVAC union said the unions would invite pilots and ground staff to join in the strike.
