First East Asia action next week

25 January 2013

ITF inspectors, along with dockers’ and seafarers’ union members will begin the first East Asian maritime action week of 2013 on Monday across ports in Japan, Korea, Russia and Taiwan. The action week will run from 28 January to 1 February.

Joint inspection teams will check and enforce decent pay and working conditions onboard vessels. Particular attention will also be paid to informing seafarers of their rights under the Maritime Labour Convention 2006, ahead of its coming into force in August this year.

In Korea the ports of Kunsan and Dangjin will be added into those where ships are to be visited and checked. In Japan a rally will also be held at the premises of the Kotoku Kaiun company, which is accused of preventing union representatives from talking to seafarers working on its ships.
 
ENDS
