Ferry sailings will be affected by civil servant strike action in Jersey next week.

Members of the unions Prospect and Unite will walk out for half a day over pay next Tuesday (27 August).

Some of the members work in customs, so strike action will see travel plans affected.

Condor's morning schedule will be brought forward by up to 30 minutes, which the company says is out of its control.

On Wednesday, the States Employment Board (SEB) wrote to more than 3,000 civil servants to update them on the pay review covering 2018, 2019 and 2020.

The SEB made a revised final pay offer earlier this month, and the trade unions will be balloting their members over the next two weeks on the offer.
