France -Cancellations due to strike at Brittany Ferries -September 24, 2012

Several ferries were cancelled at Brittany Ferries due to strikes by its French crew. The crews are engaged in actions over working conditions. Crew members took strike action over proposed plans to take away bonuses and change certain shift patterns. The company is offering passengers alternative arrangements, such as ferries departing from different French ports. Brittany Ferries said despite ‘constructive’ talks, no agreement had been reached. Although the talks continue with the trade unions ferry services operating between France and Spain have been cancelled 'indefinitely'.
