P&O Ferries was accused of plumbing new depths yesterday after trying to cut the wages of its new low-paid foreign crew.
Overseas agency workers hired to replace 786 staff illegally sacked by Zoom call claimed they were asked to sign new contracts on lower pay.
If they did not agree they faced being out of work, it is claimed.
One agency worker emailed the RMT union from the Spirit of Britain ferry in Dover and declared: “We are desperate.”
In one example, workers say chefs paid £2,336 a month on temporary contracts were asked to sign new deals giving them £195 a month less...
...But it is not known if all faced a cut, or if staff on seven other ferries were targeted too.
Some crew earn just £748 a month for a 40-hour week – barely £4.30 an hour...

A P&O ferry, which operates between Larne and Cairnryan, is adrift off the coast of Larne.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-61229753
The European Causeway, which can carry up to 410 passengers, is about five miles off Larne Harbour.
It left Cairnryan at about 12:00 BST and was due to arrive at Larne Harbour at 14:00.
P&O said the incident occurred due to a mechanical issue in the Irish Sea and a full inspection will take place when the ship is back in port.
Tugs from Larne and Belfast have been deployed to guide it back to port, P&O tweeted.
An RNLI lifeboat was also launched to the vessel.
