Vijay, an engineer, shares his view on an important aspect of the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006. Not only must seafarers have one day off per week, but they also must receive a vacation at least once a year. Since Vijay's ship sails under the flag of Singapore, which signed the Convention, he will no longer witness shipmates working 12 or 16 month contracts.
The world depends on mariners. Mariners depend on SCI. And we depend on you.
