UK: RMT protest for jobs, pay and trade union rights at Irish Ferries

On 8 February, Irish and UK unions SIPTU, RMT and Nautilus held protests on both sides of the Irish Sea to raise public awareness of Irish Ferries’ continued determination to navigate around the Irish national minimum wage by using fellow seafarers from countries where labour is much cheaper. These coordinated actions for fair wages and better working conditions in the maritime sector issued strong expressions of support for our European-wide Fair Shipping campaign.
