P&O Ferries Statement from Ian Livingstone, Managing Director

Posted: March 20, 2022 at 10:22 am

Clyde Marine Recruitment have supplied crew and officers to P&O for more than 30 years. We were as surprised as everyone else in the UK shipping business when the news broke that 600 crew and 200 officers were to lose their jobs with immediate effect. We fully understand the anger being felt by the crews, their families, and their supporters.

The claims that Clyde Marine Recruitment have supplied P&O with foreign crews on lower rates is incorrect. The crew and officers we have supplied to P&O are on full UK industry rates.
