“The City of Copenhagen does not accept social dumping”
As budget airline Ryanair tries to build on its new base at Copenhagen Airport, the city’s mayor, Frank Jensen, has banned the city’s 45,000 employees from using it for official trips.
“The City of Copenhagen does not accept social dumping,” he states on Facebook. “So we don’t use firms like Ryanair or others that don’t offer their employees proper salaries and working conditions.”
He elaborated his position in an interview with the daily newspaper Berlingske.
“Here in Copenhagen we have fought hard against the scourge of social dumping. Therefore we require all of those who deliver services to the municipality, including those who would sell us plane tickets, to offer their employees proper salaries and working conditions,” he said.
“Thus, we already have a ban on flying with Ryanair. Our rules mean that we cannot enter contracts or buy goods from suppliers that do not pay proper salaries.”
Ryanair said last month it would expand its CPH operations by launching flights to Alicante, Budapest and Malaga.
