Finnish association and unions agree on mixed crews

Postby EL » Mon Sep 28, 2009 7:51 pm

The Shipowners’ association and the different seafarers’ employee unions in Finland have agreed on the terms of employing seafarers from non-EU countries on Finnish-flagged vessels. The aim is to secure the supply of competent seafarers on Finnish and Åland cargo vessels. The share of foreign employees in a shipping company may not exceed one third of the total number of ship personnel and they may be employed in all positions on board. They are employed on a temporary basis and the salaries are agreed on for each vessel separately according to the traffic area.
