MEMBERS of shipping union RMT held the second of two protests at Portsmouth International Port today.

The latest wave of protests on the south coast are being held by shipping union members to raise awareness of the impact on shipping jobs.

Today’s demonstration got under way at 7am.

The two protests, against ‘social dumping and exploitation’, allegedly done by Condor Ferries, are being held by union members this month. The first took place on July 16.

According to the union Condor Ferries continue recruits Ukrainian seafarers on pay reported to be as low as £2.35 per hour to work on vessels to the Channel Islands.
