Brittany Ferry chiefs in talks with striking staff
FERRY bosses and workers spent much of Friday in talks following wildcat strikes which left hundreds of travellers stranded.
The 24-hour strike over Brittany Ferries cutbacks took place on Thursday and affected travellers on the Plymouth-Roscoff crossing.
Directors from Brittany Ferries met with French union representatives on Friday to try and resolve the dispute.
The Armorique ferry was to leave Roscoff on Thursday afternoon but was cancelled as a result of the action, by its French crew, affecting 575 passengers.
