The ITF Nordic week of action (21 to 25 September) closed on Friday with a total of 258 ship visits made across the 10 participating countries. Multinational teams of seafarers, dockers, ITF workers and trade union volunteers carried out the inspections in ports across Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Russia and Sweden.
ITF Maritime Coordinator Steve Cotton commented: ?With current conditions it"s never been more important to ensure that seafarers are receiving the wages they need and conditions they deserve. Across the region teams have been working without stopping to make sure that wherever humanly possible that"s what happens.?
He continued: ?What has also been particularly successful is the cross-sectoral reach of this event, with seafarers meeting with dockers, with teams talking to the public and to companies, and with colleagues from different nations visiting and working together in countries right across the region.?
