SUR provides seafarers with all required support
The representatives of the SUR Far East Regional Organization (SUR FERO) have visited a Russian-flagged Uliss (IMO8913045) and a Panama-flaggedNew Sailing 1 (IMO9123855). The last is under a flag of convenience (FOC). In large, the crews of both ships are satisfied with working conditions, although the social guarantees for the seafarers from the Russian vessel are wider. They are under protection not only a collective agreement but the Labour Code of the Russian Federation. For a FOC ship such a guarantor can be a collective agreement signed with union. New Sailing 1 didn't have the agreement.
