Dear Colleague,

RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2021 – HARWICH INTERNATIONAL PORT

INDUSTRIAL ACTION CANCELLED - WORK AS NORMAL

Further to our previous correspondence, I write to inform you of the latest developments in this matter. Fresh talks have taken place this week and they have proved to be successful with a revised offer being tabled. Your union’s National Executive Committee (NEC) has considered the matter and it has instructed me to accept the improved offer:-

2.0% on all elements of pay, effective 1st January 2021

Therefore, the following industrial action has been cancelled and you are to work as normal:-

Members are instructed to not work any Overtime or Rest Day working between the following dates and times:-

• From 00.01 hours. on Thursday, June 24th 2021 until 23.59 hours. on Friday, June 25th 2021
• From 00.01 hours. on Thursday, July 1st 2021 until 23.59 hours. on Friday, July 2nd 2021
• From 00.01 hours on Thursday, July 8th 2021 until 23.59 hours on Friday, July 9th 2021
• From 00.01 hours on Thursday, July 15th 2021 until 23.59 hours on Friday, July 16th 2021

Make no mistake, without your willingness to stand and fight for a better deal, none would have been forthcoming, and I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on your resolve.

I have informed the company that we are no longer in dispute and I have requested that the increase and the back monies be paid at the earliest opportunity.

Yours sincerely


Michael Lynch
General Secretary
