Ferry crossings to France disrupted

September 25, 2012 at 4:31 PM


French ferry workers are still on strike and it could be for some time yet. It has left passengers stranded in France and finding it difficult to find other ways home.

The dispute is over Brittany Ferries decisions on cuts. These decisions are impacting on working hours and terms and conditions of the employees.

At the head offices, which are situated in Roscoff, talks took place over the weekend but have not achieved a resolution to the issues.

The cancellation of the Roscoff to Plymouth ferry on Friday meant that passengers had to drive an extra 400 miles to Calais to get a ferry to Dover. Many of those passengers then had to have a hotel room for the night and then drive the rest of the way home the following day.

Hundreds of passengers were left stranded at the port side on Thursday evening by wild cat strikes.

Brittany Ferries said: “As yet, no agreement has been reached which will enable the company to resume services which therefore remain suspended.

“Brittany Ferries very much regrets the effect that the disruption is having on its customers and would like to reassure everyone that the management is working hard to reach a swift end to the dispute.”

We will give you more information when we have it.
