Pay Rate for Able Seafarers on large cargo ships

Hello I just acquired my Able Seafarers deck endorsement and was wondering what the typical going daily rate is on large Matson or Maersk container ships or car carriers is?? Any if would be great also thoughts on the AMO and SIU?? I’m currently with the IBU right now.

If you want Matson, you;ll need to go with SUP, here are their Matson pay rates, page 11

If you’re with the IBU, ask Bob Irminger or Marina about the SIU. But seriously, you have to ask this after experience with the IBU? You’re on the west coast. Get down to the SUP and start thinking union.
