Olympic bonus for Woolwich ferry workers

Woolwich ferry workers have secured an Olympic award of at least £400.

Staff on the free boat service across the River Thames will also receive enhanced overtime payments.

The Woolwich ferry provides a really important service and its going to be extremely busy over the Olympic period. There are going to be days where the workforce are going to be stretched to the limit.

Once again, workers had to fight hard to get their contribution and work recognised. We are pleased that workers have secured a fair award for their extra work over the Olympics.
