Back to the subject of access to internet for crew:

ITF is engaged in the wellness of seafarers around the globe:

Now that IMO has reaffirmed seafarer’s right to shore leave and protection against discrimination, will the US finally grant such rights in line with the rest of the world?:

I know Human rights only apply to Americans and since IMO doesn’t have nukes, how are they going to enforce their rules anyway??


#44

Once again you start off the flop with an interesting addition to the conversation and then your turn card shows your true self as a natural troll. Next comes the river where you deny having any issues with Americans. (Texas hold’em analogies to highlight your typical posts as a bad hand of poker)

Get it through your thick skull. This is a forum of mariners. None of us have any issue with other mariners getting access to shore leave.

Oh sorry, I should have marked that last remark SARCASM!!!


#46

SARCASM: noun. The use of irony to MOCK or convey CONTEMPT.

PS. It’s pretty clear to anyone who has read your posts in the past that you are not directing contempt at the IMO.


#47

Well it was written after I read this news story:

So no the sarcastic remark was not aimed at IMO.


#48

The truth will set you free.


#49

Are seafarers an unhappy lot?:


Another question; Does happiness affect safety??

BW Group is well aware that internet access is important to hire and retain the best people to serve on their vessels:

Liberian Register is committed to seafarer’s wellbeing on this “Day of the Seafarers”:

Hopefully it stretches to the rest of the year as well.

Almost 5 years since MLC’06 entered into force, but has it improved the conditions for seafarers worldwide?:
