What's going on at our largest ferry operator? All crossings suspended and strap lines suggest they are sacking all UK staff.

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

There is clearly something going on that we aren't aware of yet. But, for sure the way they fired 800 employees was cynical. Horrific.

More disgraceful behaviour by companies in the name of profit.

Not sure on the legalities? But surely the government should be telling P&O that if they proceed with these sackings they'll remove their franchise/licence (or whatever)

All part of "the gig economy". The sacked workers can probably forge another career as a delivery driver, or summat,.

I used to know DP World quite well, I was a supplier to them & knew quite a few of the senior management well enough to know that their opinion of the company as an employer was favourable, they were good people to work for, clearly things can change over time & circumstance but my view of this (without being privy to the facts) would be that DPW will have tried to settle this as amicably as possible at least initially - now whether union involvement, business circumstances (Brexit / Covid- who knows what) has meant that a more robust position has been adopted your guess is as good as mine, but a company that loses 100 million a year needs something to change or its unsustainable.
