ITF advice on your contract to work at sea

The best guarantee of proper conditions of employment at sea is only to sign a contract drawn up in accordance with an ITF-approved collective agreement. Failing that, here is a checklist to follow.

            – Sickness or injury during the contractual period
            – Death (amount payable to the next of kin)
            – Loss of the vessel
            – Loss of personal effects resulting from the loss of the vessel
            – Premature termination of the contract.
