(Reuters) – Ireland-based carrier Ryanair said on Tuesday its cabin crew in Spain had voted in favour of a recognition agreement with SITCPLA and USO workers’ unions.

Ryanair suffered a number of strikes last year by pilots and cabin crew, forcing it to cancel hundreds of flights across Europe, after the airline recognised unions for the first time in 2017.

The airline and the unions are working on a collective labour agreement which they both hope to conclude on or before April 30, Ryanair said in a statement.

Unions representing the cabin crew in Spain had called off plans to strike Jan. 10 and Jan. 13 after reaching a preliminary agreement on contracts earlier this month.
