The action aimed at protecting the rights and safety of seamen takes place in the Far East

From September 1 to 5, in the Far Eastern ports and ports of Japan, Korea and Taiwan, another week of fighting "flags of convenience" begins. It is reported by the Vostok-Media agency. The action is aimed at protecting the rights and labor protection of seafarers and takes place several times a year.

“Since the 2006 consolidated convention has already entered into force in Japan, Korea and finally in Russia, it has become a binding document for all shipowners. Therefore, during the week of the action, the main task of the representatives of the maritime trade unions of Asian countries will be to check the presence of the "Declaration of Conformity to Maritime Labor Standards" on board the ships, Nikolai Sukhanov, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Trade Union of Seafarers, told Vostok-Media.

Russia ratified the Convention on Labor in Maritime Navigation in 2012. It establishes minimum requirements for almost all aspects of seafarers' working conditions, including terms of employment, hours of work and rest, residence, accommodation, food, health, medical care, social security and protection.

“During the five days of the campaign in the Far Eastern ports, we will definitely check both the working conditions of the seafarers and the level of their wages. Everything must comply with international requirements, regardless of the flag that is hoisted at the stern of the ship being inspected, "Sukhanov said.
