Cost in jobs as ferry company collapses

Hundreds of jobs will be lost in France and in UK

Hundreds of jobs are being lost in France and almost 130 jobs will disappear in the UK now that the French ferry operator SeaFrance has gone into liquidation. A court in France ordered on Monday that the liquidation of the loss-making ferry operator must go ahead following the rejection of a plan by the company’s employees to save it by establishing a workers’ cooperative.
The ferry company operated the Dover-Calais line until ships stopped running in November. Those who will lose their jobs on both sides of the Channel include not just office workers but check-in staff and employees who helped passengers to board the ships.
