MTWTU calls to support future seafarers

The Marine Transport Workers’ Trade Union of Ukraine, representing the interests of 12,000 Ukrainian maritime cadets and students among its 80,000 total membership, has been receiving a number of appeals from those cadets and young officers who are unable to be repatriated before their examinations.

In view of the above, the MTWTU appealed to the shipowners, employing Ukrainian cadets and young officers, with kind request to consider the possibility of repatriation of seafarers, currently employed onboard in the capacity of Engine and Deck Cadets, who are in urgent need to return home for the exams in their educational institutions and whose positions are excluded from the ship’s Minimum Safe Manning.
Also, provided that some maritime educational institutions have introduced the remote access to exams, not requiring the personal presence of the cadets in the educational facility, we asked the shipowners to make sure that the cadets on board their ships have an access to the Internet and are released from work for the exam session (study), as per the Collective Bargaining Agreements signed.
