Industrial action on Normandie


Recommended Posts

Just had a phone call from my partner that she is on the Normandie and they have announced that the sailing has been delayed because of industrial action on board. I think it's on the loading decks.

i reckon port workers have got onboard and put themselves up cars and trucks so they are slowing down to give them time to get them out

it sounds like something they would do

 

Such speculation isn't helpful.

I am told the problem was with the engineroom crew going on strike.  The Normandie sailed about 6pm French time. As an aside the poor girl didn't home till about 3.30am this morning.

Could have been a lot better if they had sailed on time and not disrupted freight & passenger onward arrangements. Striking at the drop of a hat like that to cause maximum disruption to innocent parties is never acceptable.

Indeed- and naturally. But think about the possible knock-on effects if it were for longer. Let's all hope this is the end of it and not the beginning!
