About Fair Pay At Sea

The world’s 1.6 million seafarers have kept our shops full during the pandemic and responded magnificently to the recent upswing in global trade. Their work is arduous and isolating – 90 hour working week’s are common. Because of covid, many seafarers have not been home for two years. They are also the only group of workers who benefit from a global, legally enforceable minimum wage – currently $641 a month. At the end of April 2021, employers and unions will meet to agree a new minimum. A rise is vital. We must recognise the contribution of seafarers during this exceptional period, and enable the evolution of the high skills/high wage industry that global logistics require.
