Channel Tunnel puts part-time working in place

[ April 3, 2020   //   ]

Channel Tunnel operator Getlink is to put part-time working in place for 2,339 of its French employees from 1 April and is working on an equivalent scheme for British employees. The decision reflects the noticeable drop in passengers compared to the relatively resilient performance of van and truck traffic. As a measure of solidarity, Jacques Gounon has requested that his own salary be reduced. The Board will not propose making a dividend payment at its annual general meeting this year.
