RMT pickets out in force in CalMac dispute today as RMT confirms that the action in defence of jobs, working conditions and services has been rock solid.
General Secretary Mick Cash said:
"Our members on CalMac were rock solid in support of the ballot and have been rock solid in support of the action. They are a credit to the labour movement and the whole union salutes their solidarity and determination.
"At the heart of this dispute lies the fact that safe and reliable life-line ferry services go hand in hand with a properly respected workforce and with proper staffing levels. That fact needs to be grasped urgently by those calling the shots. "
