Condor has ‘difficult decisions with staffing’ as it resizes
DIFFICULT decisions to protect Condor’s future – including on staffing – has meant further changes as the company ‘resizes’.
Condor said it would not comment on employee-related issues, but told the Guernsey Press that it continues to experience very challenging times due to the effects of coronavirus on passenger and freight operations.
‘This means making further changes as we resize the company to protect its future, which regrettably involves difficult decisions on staffing,’ a spokesperson said.
‘Our policy is not to discuss employment matters externally so we would ask that consideration and respect are shown as we support those colleagues affected.’
More generally at Guernsey Ports, there are no plans to make any staff redundancies in any departments at Guernsey and Alderney airports and Guernsey Harbours.
Guernsey Ports requires set staffing numbers in a range of departments, such as the Airport Fire and Rescue Service, Air Traffic Control, Guernsey Coastguard and the Guernsey Vessel Traffic Service.
‘The number of vessel or flight movements at the harbours and airports has no bearing on staffing levels at Guernsey Ports,’ a spokesperson said.
‘Vessels at the harbour or on the ground at the airport are either handled by the operator in-house, or are managed by a third-party provider on their behalf.’
