Stena have terminated the contracts of the zero-hour employed temporary crew (after their fight to get furloughed in the first instance) and Permanent Part Time Crew and offered redundancy packages to all other crew.

Things not looking too good or happy morale there at the moment.

Stena Line have laid off their zero-hour contact crew by terminating the contracts of employment. Once this madness is over they will have to re-apply for their posts afresh.
Stena Line seem to be taking major advantage of this situation sadly.

Hope all will be well for the crews on the Irish Sea!

Sweden’s Stena Line will lay off 950 employees as a consequence of the dramatic drop in passengers. More layoffs could be in store.
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – Ferry company Stena Line will cut 950 jobs in Sweden as a result of the coronavirus outbreak and the travel restrictions imposed by several countries, the company said on Monday.
The company was experiencing a “drastic decline” in travel bookings as a result, with the worst effect experienced in Scandinavia, it said. “At present, it is estimated that passenger operations will not recover before the peak season in summer,” the company said in a statement.

You mention the filthy passengner transfer buses. How is it that the IF's berth has a foot passenger gangway, but not the Stena berth which is right next to it?  I appreciate that it costs money to erect these structures, but weren't both berths built at the same time?

Also, gangway hasn't been in use for many years after storm damage - and from memory the structure has now been removed

A good friend of mine that works onboard for Stena says that they are dealing well with extra passengers transferred from IF. However, the lack of information the pax have received from IF makes a number very irate and angry - and the Stena crew have to deal with that!. Stena's pax numbers for the time of year are already high, with the angry extras makes their shifts difficult.
An example would be a passenger (who had paid for an upgrade to Club on IF) insisting that they were upgraded to StenaPlus, (bookings/upgrades haven't transferred) being so abusive (swearing and shouting) to a crew member bringing her to tears - needless to say the pax wasn't upgraded!
