What we do

Ship visits

We are not visiting ships in 2020 because of the COVID-19 crisis.

Around the world, all year round, our union officers go aboard ships to speak to crew. We share information, give advice and listen to what issues are important to you.

Often, the same issues are reported to us on several ships. We take these wider issues to the company when we negotiate with them.

Usually, we will spend our visits in the crew mess, where we can talk to people while they are not working. Sometimes we also walk around the ship and speak to crew. Look out for us. Come and speak to us about any issues you have.

Any information you share with us stays confidential unless you ask us to share it.

Our aim is to visit all the ships covered by our agreements at least once a year. Most will be visited more than once.

If you would like us to visit your ship, please email us: mail@nsu.org
