Low Pay On Channel Island Ferry Services

EDM number 1039 in 2017-19, proposed by Ian Mearns on 08/03/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Pay and Shipping.

That this House welcomes the States of Jersey's vote to set the Jersey Living Wage of £9.75 per hour for public sector employees and sub-contractors from 1 June 2018; supports the development of low-pay policy in the Channel Islands and all Crown Dependencies and British Overseas Territories; notes that in 2014 Condor Ferries paid Ukrainian stewards £2.46 per hour on lifeline ferry services from Portsmouth to Jersey and Guernsey; is concerned that international seafarers working on Condor Ferries' Bahamian-registered fleet continue to be paid well below the UK National Living Wage of £7.50 per hour; supports the application and enforcement of National Minimum Wage rates of pay in UK territorial waters; and calls on the Government to support the RMT union's campaign to eradicate low pay for seafarers on outsourced public contracts for lifeline passenger and freight ferry services between the UK and the Channel Islands.

This motion has been signed by a total of 14 MPs.
