Tallink, Unions: Ferry Schedules to Be Unaffected by One-Hour Strike ({{commentsTotal}})


The Estonian Seamen's Independent Union (EMSA) strike to be held from 13:30 to 14:30 today will not result in any cancellations in either the Tallinn or Helsinki direction, Tallink Group said.

Some of the crew members on the Star and Superstar fast ships plan to take part in the strike and will disembark the vessels at the beginning of the hour, but negotiations succeeded in reaching an agreement that they would reassume their posts by the scheduled departure time.

Ferries are due to leave port at 14:00 in both Tallinn and Helsinki.

Tallink did however ask passengers to arrive at the terminal slightly earlier as there could be delays boarding. The worst case scenario is that the ships will depart up to half an hour late.

The evening Tallinn-Stockholm-Tallinn lines will not be affected by the strike, which is protesting what the union says are insufficient pay raises.
