Seafarers today are increasingly attracted to sophisticated training, professional development, and long-term employment, according to a survey by MSC Shipmanagement, the Cyprus-based unit of the global container line Mediterranean Shipping Company.
The newly published ‘Container Stevedoring Monitoring Report’ says that increased competition in container stevedoring has pushed prices to their lowest level in 17 years. The report notes there is now infrastructure in place to support a third stevedore in each of the 3 largest container ports in Australia.
An independent study was commissioned by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) and carried out by Cardiff University. The study, Experiences of arrangements for health, safety and welfare in the global container terminal industry, aims to bring significant improvements in the health, safety and welfare of workers in the global container port industry.
FNV and CNV Vakmensen trade unions, Rotterdam container companies and the Port of Rotterdam Authority have concluded consultations on employment in the container industry. The trade unions will present the outcome of the negotiations to their members with favourable advice.
