Ballot on the ferries

Issue No. 2279

The RMT union is balloting members for strikes at the West of Scotland signalling centre and at Wightlink’s ferries between Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight.

The West of Scotland dispute is over management dropping longstanding promotion practices for staff.

The Wightlink dispute concerns the victimisation and dismissal of an RMT union representative.
