United Kingdom -Pay dispute unresolved after more than a year -April 12, 2013

Union members of the Nautilus trade union at Orkney Ferries are continuing to work to rule after the council continued to refuse to make an acceptable pay offer. The Orkney Island Council offered 1% increase in pay — well below the current inflation rate. Union members voted to take action short of a strike in March, but said they did not want to stage a full walk-out because of the damaging impact it could have on the islands’ population who rely on the lifeline services. The union is now seeking direct talks with councillors in the Northern Isles, as the pay dispute for the ferry workers remains unresolved after a year.
