Ferry strike off
FERRY workers called off industrial action on CalMac routes after reaching a settlement last week.
An agreement was reached on Wednesday, July 22, after talks involving the ferry operator, the Scottish government and ferry union representatives.
The dispute was prompted by concerns about putting CalMac services in the Clyde and Hebrides Ferry Services (CFHS) contract out to tender.
The unions said the agreement had averted potential industrial action, following assurances on employment, redundancies and pensions.
Workers previously went on strike on June 26 over the issue.
CalMac and rival operator, Serco, will go head-to-head for the £1billion contract, with a decision to be made in May 2016.
