ITF East Asia action begins Monday
Teams of ITF inspectors, along with dockers’ and seafarers’ union members, will begin the first East Asian maritime action week of 2015 on Monday across ports in Japan, Korea, Russia and Taiwan. The action week will run from 26 to 30 January, ITF said in its press release.
The teams will check and enforce decent pay and working conditions onboard vessels.
In Japan a rally will also be held at the Kotoku Kaiun company, over its refusal to engage in dialogue with union representatives.
