Maritime Labor Convention
The Maritime Labor Convention 2006 (MLC) is an international agreement of the International Labor Organization (‘ILO’) which sets out seafarers’ rights to decent conditions of work. It is sometimes called the seafarers’ Bill of Rights. It applies to all seafarers, including those with jobs in hotel and other passenger services on cruise ships and commercial yachts.
The Union of the Comoros, although it has not yet ratified the MLC, has as primary concern the seafarers’ safety in their workplace. As a pay of respect to the people who man our fleet, we try to set minimum requirements for nearly every aspect of working and living conditions, adopting this international legal instrument in any aspect.
