Well first off, I’ve been a due paying brother as soon as I arrived at fire school in san diego. second off, I was only paid “overtime” instead of the applicible pay that is dictated in the CMPI. Third, I didn’t receive my last check (the pay period that i was tank cleaning on) intill I was already paid off. I know how to pursue my own issues. (already filed a pay dispute with my detailer, and spoke to the patrolman with the union)
The best thing that has happened out of this is that I recieved my east-west transfer, as a number of friends of mine who sail west tell me there is alot less bullshit on the west coast. :D:D
As far as the whole “msc give you free training” thing, yeah thats great, and in all actuality now that im sailing west, ill stay with msc. At least intil i have my Tankerman-PIC. Then im fucking ghost.
The current economy is not conducive for anyone to leave MSC, there just aren’t that many maritime jobs right now.
I hope im not coming off in a negative way, but if currently sail with MSC then you should know where I am coming from.
MSC rocks, Its what you make it.
