Last night (Thursday) the Isle of Wight Trades Union Council met to discuss the issue of Wightlink Ferries scrapping overnight crossings.
Bob Blocksidge, Chairman of Unite Isle of Wight Area Activists, tells On The Wight that that it was agreed a public meeting would be held in January to gather views of the general public.
Will affect those working off the Island
He said the opinion reached at the meeting was that the reduction in the frequency of ferry sailings will be to the detriment of all who live on the Island, especially affecting those who have to travel off the Island for work.
It was also thought it will have an adverse effect goods and services, such as emergency travel to hospitals on the mainland.
The meeting will be held at Newport Football Club on Thursday 3rd January 2013 at 7pm and anyone who wishing to share their opinion on the changes to ferry services with the union is invited to attend.
