Port of Felixstowe Strike – Update 19/08

Please see below received from the Port Of Felixstowe :


Dear all


As you are aware, due to the impending stoppages we have made the difficult decision to remove all bookings from the VBS system between 0400 hours on Sunday 21st August through to 0700 hours on Tuesday 30th August.  During this period we will be reviewing on a shift by shift basis whether we are able to operate haulage operations and will communicate this to all via the VBS system.  A message will be put on VBS every shift by 0900 hours / 2100 hours detailing what, if any, work we can undertake during the shift.  Whilst we will endeavour to provide some sort of service to you wherever possible, it remains a real possibility that we will be unable to offer any VBS bookings on strike shifts.


Please monitor the VBS messaging system for updates and I would ask that you do not contact the CSC directly regarding VBS availability.


Your continued patience and understanding during this very difficult time is appreciated.
