The pandemic has made an amendment to the honoring of veterans who retire after the service on board the vessels of SCF MANAGEMENT SERVICES (Novorossiysk). So, for this reason, the Black Sea-Azov territorial organization of the SUR did not have a traditional solemn meeting, as it has been for many years, but this does not mean that the seafarers did not hear warm words of gratitude for their excellent work and contribution to the development of the company and the industry. So 17 seafarers received a one-time cash payment and letters of thanks as part of a joint program of the shipowner and the union. «By your impeccable work and responsible attitude to work, you have made a significant contribution to achieving high operating results of the Sovcomflot group of companies and the entire shipping industry,» - said Igor Tonkovidov, General Director of Sovcomflot, and Yuri Sukhorukov, Chairman of the SUR, in a letter of thanks to the new pensioners. Over the years of working in shipping industry you have faced many difficulties, but you have always overcome them thanks to your skills, endurance and perseverance – the essential credentials of real seafarers. Thank you for your many years of work, high professionalism and dedication». « Our colleagues, seafarers with whom we worked together for many years came to us. It was strange to look at these men and women, who were not yet old, full of vitality and desire to work, and who are still able to work even after retirement. But the requirements of the company remained unchanged, and they will now get on with their life on shore,- said Alexey Belyakov, Chairman of the Novorossiysk primary organization of the seafarers of Sovcomflot. By the way, many of them are already working on harbour vessels in Novorossiysk. Others will start looking for work soon». The union representatives mentioned that the doors of union office are always open for seafarers and there are no any obstacles for them to visit the Union.
