RMT tonight welcomed the MCA detention of P&O vessel European Causeway in Larne for multiple safety and operational breaches and demanded that the Government seize the entire fleet and take action to get them back in service with the sacked crew reinstated.
General Secretary Mick Lynch said;
"The seizing of the European Causeway by the MCA tonight shows that the gangster capitalist outfit P&O are not fit and proper to run a safe service after the jobs massacre.
"This mob should be barred, their ships impounded and the sacked crews reinstated to get these crucial ferry routes back running safely."
