?No change likely? to employers' situation

?No change likely? to employers' situation
IMEC, the International Maritime Employers? Committee, has hinted that seafarer unions looking for an increased pay deal may be disappointed.

An IMEC statement says: ?The same key challenges that faced the industry during 2009 continue to affect us during 2010. The world financial situation is still in a critical period with continued pressure being applied to all industries to cope with the drop in trade and curtail expenditure. Whilst an understanding was reached during 2009 that IBF pay reviews would be kept on hold until the end of 2010, in order to asses any change to the fortunes of the industry over a longer period, initial indications seem to show that the industry will not undergo any large change during the foreseeable future.?

It adds: ?MEC is committed to the negotiation process of the International Bargaining Forum and fully intends to comply with the agreement to meet with the ITF during 2010 with a view to pragmatically examining the continued effect of the financial crisis on the ability of the ship owners to agree to any future increase in minimum salary levels, for seafarers employed by its members.?

The statement was issued at a press conference to ?provide the industry a brief retrospective on the events of 2009 that had occupied so much of the organisations" time and also to provide a look ahead to the many significant challenges that face IMEC and the industry as a whole during 2010?.

In 2009 IMEC changed both in the location of the organisation"s head office and also in the position of Secretary General. The significant growth of IMEC and recognition of it as a stand-alone international association prompted a move to larger premises with the provision of conference room facilities, enabling IMEC to operate efficiently. Thus after lengthy feasibility studies and property searches, IMEC announced its intention to move out of the offices it shared with the International Chamber of Shipping and International Shipping Federation on Carthusian Street to a new modern office space in St Katharine"s Dock, next to Tower Bridge, London.

IMEC"s long serving Secretary General, David Dearsley, retired in 2009 and was replaced by and the appointment of Giles Heimann who had spent 12 months working alongside Mr Dearsley.
