Inland Navigation

Working for better lives on waterways.

ITF represents crew members and port workers on inland waterways throughout the world, in both trade and passenger tourism. We campaign for better working conditions on canals and rivers, as well as on shore, at wharfs and quays.

From timber to tourists, coffee to commuters, our crews carry cargo and passengers in a growing and challenging industry.
