Ryanair pilots based in Belgium have been called out to strike on the 10th of August, the Christian trade union, CNE, and the Belgian Cockpit Association, BeCA, announced on Wednesday.
In retaliation for a three-day strike in July, the low-cost Irish carrier announced on Friday that 100 pilots and 200 cabin staff would be transferred to Poland, threatening them with dismissal if they refused.

In response, the Irish pilots had announced that they would strike for a fourth day on Friday, the CNE and BeCA recalled, urging all Ryanair pilots based in Belgium to support their Irish colleagues and join in the strike planned for the 10th of August in various European countries.

Cabin staff in Portugal, Spain, Italy and Belgium had already taken strike action on 25 and 26 July.
