Union tries to blockade port

LD Lines has threatened SeaFrance workers with legal action after they vowed to continue attempts to blockade the port of Boulogne in protest against the use of low-wage seafarers.
SeaFrance workers tried to blockade Boulogne on 11 and 19 June, only to be thwarted by French riot police. SeaFrance workers’ union CFDT told IFW it would continue attempts to disrupt traffic boarding and disembarking to demonstrate against the use of “underpaid” UK and Portuguese seafarers on the UK-flagged vessel Norman Arrow.
