Condor Ferries statement about ‘unannounced’ strike by staff in St Malo:
“I sincerely apologise to our guests who have been inconvenienced by this unannounced industrial action,” said James Fulford, CEO of Condor Ferries. “We are surprised and disappointed that our colleagues in France have chosen to express themselves in this way without notice, particularly as we are in very constructive discussions with them about their work and benefits.
“Condor Ferries is a caring and fair employer and we treat all our employees well, and we place the highest priority on the health and safety of our workforce. We will work with our colleagues in France to resolve this dispute as swiftly as possible in order to resume our services between the Channel Islands and France.”
