ILO meets in Geneva to discuss amendments to MLC, 2006

Geneva - This past week the special tripartite committee of the ILO agreed on a new amendment to the Maritime Labor Convention (MLC) 2006 which will now be submitted to the next session of the International Labor Conference for adoption. The amendment, when it enters into force, will address a potential contractual gap for those seafarers who unfortunately fall victim and are held captive on or off a ship as a result of an act of piracy or armed robbery against ships. The seafarers’ wages and other contractual entitlements will continue to be paid during the entire period of captivity. ICMA was present for the duration of the week, with a delegation headed by Mr. Douglas Stevenson of the SCI Center for Seafarers' Rights.
