ALLAN WELCOMES CANCELLATION OF FERRY STRIKE

 

SNP MSP for Na h-Eileanan an Iar, Alasdair Allan, has welcomed the news that the Calmac ferry strike planned for tomorrow (Friday) has been called off.

 

Alasdair Allan commented:

 

“The progress which has been made in talks this week between the unions and employers is encouraging, and the strike has been called off while discussions continue.

 

“The Scottish Government has been working to bring the two sides together, and I have been in touch a number of times with the Transport Minister about issues that have been raised with me in the islands.

 

“Now it is in everyone’s interest that further industrial action is prevented. I hope that the opportunity now exists to reach agreement in a way that meets the needs not just of staff and employers, but also of the traveling public in the islands, the tourist industry and the islands’ economy.”
