There are some countries where there are no ITF affiliated trade unions for seafarers, such as China.

In other countries where trade unions are illegal there are no trade unions at all, such as the United Arab Emirates.

If there is no ITF affiliated union in your country, you can apply to become a member of the ITF directly. Please use the contact us link at the right of this page.

If you are working on a ship that is covered by an ITF Collective Agreement, then you will automatically become a member of the ITF union that holds the agreement for the duration of the agreement.
