What we do

Legal issues

We can give legal advice on work-related issues

If necessary, our Officers will liaise with our legal team on your behalf. If you have a case that may need input from our legal team, it will be assessed for merit before any legal action is taken. Your NSU Officer will guide and support you through this process.

External lawyers

We are aware that there are external lawyers who offer their services to seafarers. Lawyers cost money. Our services are free.

Our advice is that, if you have a problem, you should contact NSU first. Our services are free and we will never take a percentage of any payments you may receive.

Please be advised that if you employ an external lawyer to help you with a issue, we will no longer be able to assist you with that problem.

Lawyers are expensive and you may be able to resolve your issue for free with our help.
