SHORT TERM SICKNESS POLICY – RATINGS – P&O FERRIES
In reference to the above, I write to advise that the recently introduced sickness toolkit policy on-board P&O Ferries vessels have NOT been agreed by the RMT.
Your union has today communicated with the company demanding that they remove the guidance and allow meaningful discussions to take place with the company to use the content of our mutually agreed Collective Agreements as the basis for addressing sickness issues. Any failure to retract the sickness toolkit and initiate meaningful discussions could result in a dispute situation between our two organisations
Again I must reiterate that the Sickness Toolkit has not been agreed by your National Executive Committee.
I will keep you advised of all further developments in this matter.
