Maritime workers onboard protest at Port of Tauranga

A delegation of Maritime Union members will go onboard the vessel Buzzard Bay at the Port of Tauranga today to deliver a message to the captain about practices aboard the ship.

The Buzzard Bay is trading without an International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) agreement that guarantees employment conditions are maintained at an acceptable internationally agreed level, and the health, welfare, social and human rights of crew are also protected.

The overseas crew on the vessel have been unlashing cargo in New Zealand waters without permits.
