The latest protest will call for an end to Condor Ferries paying poverty wages on their ships. It follows and builds on a demonstration held in December.

Condor is contracted by the Jersey and Guernsey governments to operate lifeline ferry services between Portsmouth and Poole and the Channel Islands. Their contract is up for renewal in 2019.

RMT is calling on trade unionists, politicians and the public in Jersey, Guernsey and the UK to support the protest in pursuit of the union’s demands for:

• A Living Wage employer (£9.75 p.h.), as a minimum on lifeline Channel Island ferry services.
• Recognition for RMT to collectively bargain for seafarer Ratings.
• Register all UK-Channel Island ferries in the Red Ensign Group.
• Binding targets for Seafarer apprentices over the life of the next contract.
