Ballot of City Cruises members prepared


I have recently been made aware that RMT member Hairia Abdo has been dismissed from her employment at City Cruises. It is the view of our members that this decision is overly harsh and is an example of management applying the strongest possible sanction without proper consideration of all the circumstances.

The National Executive Committee has considered this matter and has instructed me to ballot our Captain/Mate members at City Cruises. Accordingly, I have advised the company that a dispute situation exists between our organisations and I am currently preparing the ballot of all our affected members at City Cruises.

I will, of course, keep Branches fully advised on any further developments.
