P&O fires 800 crew members with immediate effect and hires agency personnel to sail the ships, but unions advise workers to REFUSE to leave and stage a sit-in’ in the midst of a salary dispute, as befuddled passengers are turned away at ports.
In a statement, the ferry operator said: “We have made a £100m loss year-on-year, which has been covered by our parent DP World. This is not sustainable. Our survival is dependent on making swift and significant changes now.
“Without these changes, there is no future for P&O Ferries.”
