Promoting seafarers' rights

NSU does a lot of work to improve for seafarers' rights internationally

In addition to negotiating with different companies and directly supporting crew, we also work internationally to promote seafarers’ rights. Through this work, we help to shape international law that protects seafarers.

Most of our international work is as an affiliate of the ITF (International Transport Workers Federation).

You find out more about the ITF here:  and what the ITF Seafarers Section does here 

International work helped to create the Maritime Labour Convention or MLC (find out more here) or watch a short film about it here: MLC film

We also participate in important work through the International Maritime Organisation, which is part of the United Nations (UN). Find out more about the IMO here)
