RYANAIR passengers could face more problems next week as another union has confirmed they will strike.

Unions representing staff and cabin crew for Ryanair in Italy have called a 24-hour strike on June 25.

This coincides with walkouts the budget airline is facing the same day in other parts of Europe.

Italian unions FILT-CGIL and UIL Trasporti said they were seeking improved pay and conditions after staging a four-hour stoppage earlier in June.
