Urgent demonstrations on 18th March against mass sackings on P&O

The UK has today seen one of the most vicious examples of despotic employer behaviour and one of the most shameful episodes in its recent industrial history.

800 workers were sacked immediately, with no notice so they can be replaced by cheaper labour.

There are reports of the use of security guards boarding ships with handcuffs to remove crew so they can be replaced.

If this happens at P&O it can happen anywhere and we are calling for mass trade union and wider public mobilisation and protest against the company and support these workers.
