The advisory group has chosen to acquaint another revision with the Maritime Labor Convention (MLC) 2006, in this way empowering the legally binding hole for seafarers who are abducted by privateers to be secured.
It was resolved that wages and other authoritative privileges will keep on being paid amid the whole time of bondage for seafarers who are held hostage on or off a ship because of a demonstration of theft or outfitted burglary against ships.
The change will now be submitted to the following session of the International Labor Conference for reception.
This will furnish the families with the important methods for survival to halfway reduce the staggering mental trouble they experience while their friends and family are held prisoners, the ITF said.

By and large, I trust the week was effective for all in the sea division,” Dave Heindel,chair of the ITF seafarers’ area, said.
