Maritime union RMT said today that it is organising further protests in the fight for workplace justice for the P&O workers sacked by the company in a jobs massacre two weeks ago. Confirmed so far;
Thursday 31st March Port of Liverpool L21 1LA at 07.30am
Friday 8th April at Cairnryan Port at 12 noon.
More events will be added to the schedule as the fight goes on.
General Secretary Mick Lynch said;
“P&O clearly feel they can get away with whatever workplace brutality they choose to hand out and the union remains determined to turn the tide and get our members back on the vessels operating safe services on these crucial ferry routes.
“The company have a gun levelled at our members heads with the 31st March deadline on their "take it or leave it" threat to staff. That is a scandalous way to behave and shows they've learnt nothing from the backlash against the original sackings.
“RMT is continuing to use every lever at our disposal to right this wrong on Britain's ferries and we thank the public and our fellow trade unionists for their fantastic support.”
