P&O Ferries forced to reverse attempted pay cut

P&O Ferries has been forced to reverse an attempt to pay its new, cheaper agency workers even less money after the RMT Union received reports of agency workers at Dover being asked to sign new contracts inferring lower pay. The union reported P&O Ferries to the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, which ensured the new workers retained their original wages.

P&O Ferries sacked almost 800 employees last month and brought in cheaper agency workers on some of its boats, in a move it said would ensure the future of the business. The company has been asked for comment but has so far not responded.
