The approximately 115 Dutch employees in the field at P&O Ferries will receive a wage increase of more than 10% as of 1 January this year. This is the result of collective labour agreement negotiations with the Dutch trade union FNV Havens, which speaks of a ‘great  result in these times of high inflation’. The wage improvement is made up of, among other things, a 3.3% inflation correction, a 2% wage increase and compensation for the loss of early hours of work.

ontainer ship ‘Ever Forward’ is floating again after being stuck for more than a month in the mud in Chesapeake Bay, the bay near the American capital Washington D.C. Salvage companies led by Donjon Smit, an American joint venture of the Dutch Boskalis, managed to get the freighter afloat on Sunday. To make that feat possible, approximately five hundred containers were first taken off board by crane ships last week to reduce the weight of the vessel. Also, 65,000 cubic meters of mud around the ship was sucked away, enough mud to fill 27 inland vessels.
