  • P&O Ferries ship detained over crew training concerns



    A P&O Ferries ship is being held in Northern Ireland because it is "unfit to sail", nine days after the company sacked 800 workers without notice.

    The European Causeway had been held in Larne over "failures on crew familiarisation, vessel documentation and crew training", the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) said.

    P&O Ferries said it would make changes to return the ship to service.

    Protests at UK ports are calling on customers to boycott the company.

    They gathered in Dover, Hull and Liverpool, chanting slogans such as "don't go P&O" and "seize the ship".

    Protestors from the RMT Union are attempting to block access to the Pride of Rotterdam in Hull docks.

    Meanwhile, the Trades Union Congress tweeted a video it said showed P&O dockers in Rotterdam refusing to load freight onto a ferry set for Hull in solidarity with sacked workers.

    Unions have raised fears over a lack of training of new crew, after the firm replaced their members with workers whose average hourly rate of pay would be £5.50, less than the UK minimum wage.

    As the company's ships operate internationally and are registered overseas, the UK minimum hourly rate of £8.91 does not apply.
