Travel with easyJet, where service includes job recruitment

THE GUARDIAN , LONDON

PAY DEAL

The union has 1,600 members among easyJet crew and recently agreed to a pay deal which members are being balloted on.

"EasyJet is better than [rival budget airline] Ryanair," Gold said. "Ryanair put pressure on crew if they have sickness problems."

"They don't recruit in the same way as easyJet, from passengers or from adverts in the press. They recruit through agencies, many of them in eastern European countries," he said.

"One of the things easyJet could improve on is quality of life issues, rostering arrangements. It's not such an issue for operators like BA which have got different types of operations and more choice," he said. "With a low-fare operator going from Gatwick to Salzburg, there's less ability for the individual to say: `that roster is causing me difficulties.'"
