P&O clean-up after cleaner's dismissal

CALAIS 29 November – A French Chamber of Commerce strike, which caused a suspension of ferry services between the UK port of Dover and French port of Calais, has now ended. However Fairplay understands an onboard situation at SeaFrance has resulted in their services continuing to be suspended for an indefinite period. No further details on this incident are available other than that it has left P&O to start clearing the backlog of traffic alone. On the UK side of the channel, Kent police put “Operation Stack” into operation yesterday, queuing over 1,000 trucks on the inside lane of the M20 motorway. Several car drivers were stranded in their vehicles overnight. The UK’s Freight Transport Association said the strike would cost at least £2M ($3.9M) as well as causing huge inconvenience. There have been at least 20 strikes in Calais over the last 10 years costing more than 100 days disruption at a cost to the European transport industry of over £100M. “'Strikes and blockades by farmers, routiers, fishermen, port workers and all the rest impact not only on Calais but on Dover and in [the UK county of] Kent in general,” commented FTA's external affairs director Geoff Dossetter. “It is infuriating, expensive and stupid”. Industrial action was prompted by the dismissal of a Chamber cleaner.
