Third East Asia action week begins Monday

Teams of ITF inspectors, along with dockers’ and seafarers’ union members, will check pay and working conditions on board vessels as part of the third East Asian maritime action week of 2015. This begins on Monday across ports in Japan, Korea, Russia and Taiwan and will run from 14 to 18 September.

In Japan a rally will also be held at the Kotoku Kaiun company, over its refusal to engage in dialogue with union representatives.
