IMPACT says it wants to meet Ryanair sooner rather than later to see if Wednesday's planned strike action by pilots can be called off.
On Friday, Ryanair agreed to recognise unions for the first time ever, but unions wanted talks to ensure the details of the agreement.
Union spokesman Niall Shanahan has welcomed the progress, but said that they can not call off the strike just yet.
'If the best way to achieve this is to talk to our pilots through a recognised union process, then we are prepared to do so, and we have written today to these unions inviting them to talks to recognise them and calling on them to cancel the threatened industrial action planned for Christmas week'.
Union chiefs had earlier insisted the strike action would go ahead unless management agreed to meet before Wednesday.
RYANAIR will announce "contingency plans" for passengers facing a 24-hour strike in the run-up to Christmas tomorrow.

Speaking to the Sunday Independent, a senior union source insisted the get-together between both sides would have to be before the Wednesday deadline.
"It has invited each of them to talks to recognise these unions and the representative bodies for pilots in Ryanair in each of these countries", said Mr Byrne.
O'Leary noted that the move would mark a significant change for the airline.
However, Impact/Ialpa said it would not call off the action unless Ryanair met union representatives before the proposed strike was due to take place.
The carrier admitted it had "messed up" the planning of its pilots' holidays.
