Rever lay-offs

31 December 2019

Nautilus industrial organisers are representing members employed on Rever Sapphire, due to be cold-stacked by the company, with expected lay-offs.

The Union has been told the redundancy payments will be based upon actual salaries as opposed to statutory minimums; however, the company maintains that this is subject to a 20-year cap.

Ten individuals have formally requested voluntary redundancy and all have been accepted.

The master, chief engineer and third engineer positions have now been removed from the at-risk register, leaving 13 jobs at risk of compulsory redundancies from an initial 25.
