Labour members have reacted with shock and anger as the news emerged today that 800 workers have been summarily sacked without notice or consultation. Bexhill and Battle constituency borders Kent where many of the P&O workers working the Dover to Calais route are based. P&O have received millions of pounds of government bailout during the pandemic including drawing down millions in funding to furlough staff. To fire the entire workforce on the spot and replace them with lower paid emergency workers shows utter contempt for the Government and the British tax payer.

CLP Chair Christine Bayliss said “I am utterly shocked that these sorts of practices still exist. This is a despicable way to treat a loyal workforce. If they are allowed to get away with this I for one will not set foot on a P&O boat again and I urge the public to boycott the company.
