Ratify Maritime Labour Convention

Additional Information

The ILO's Maritime Labour Convention (MLC), 2006 provides comprehensive rights and protection at work for the world's more than 1.2 million seafarers. The Convention aims to achieve both decent work for seafarers and secure economic interests in fair competition for quality shipowners.

To come into force, the MLC has to be ratified by at least 30 member States with a total share in the world gross tonnage of ships of 33 per cent.

The latest country to ratify the MLC was the Netherlands, bringing the total to 21.
