Maritime Labour Convention is an International Labour Organisation Convention established in 2006. It is considered as the fourth pillar of international maritime law and embodies after SOLAS, STCW and MARPOL. It contains “all up-to-date standards of existing international maritime labour Conventions and Recommendations, as well as the fundamental principles to be found in other international labour Conventions”.
The Seafarers Rights International has released this video to make the seafarers understand their basic rights.
Watch the animated version of MLC, 2006 that helps to understand the convention easily.
Deirdre Fitzpatrick, SRI executive director, commented: “Seafarers can sometimes consider their rights to be illusory and it is important that the MLC is seen to be of practical relevance to working seafarers. We hope that the films will enable seafarers to understand better the relevance of the MLC and how it can improve their working lives in a real sense.”
