To Shipowners and Managers

Competencies of Ukrainian seafarers are highly valued in the international maritime labor market. That is what makes Ukraine the fourth largest supplier to the global maritime labor market.

More than 52,000 Ukrainian seafarers working on the ships of foreign shipowners are registered with the MTWTU.

In Ukraine, the MTWTU exclusively has the right to conclude Collective Bargaining Agreements of the ITF and IBF standard, which provide for the protection of labor rights and decent social benefits to Ukrainian seamen.

The agreement of IBF standard applies to shipowners, who are members of the International Maritime Employers’ Council (IMEC).

To conclude the Collective Agreement please fill out the ITF 16 Point Questionnaire, send it to and we will come back to you shortly.

The samples of other documents may be found here.
