       世界各地的船员可以开始期待更高的工资了,因为相关国际机构就船员最低工资全面提高4.5%达成了协议。
 
       经过两天的谈判,国际运输工人联合会(the International Transport Workers’ Federation,简称ITF)和国际航运工会(the International Chamber of Shipping,简称ICS)在日内瓦召开的联合海事委员会(the Joint Maritime Commission,简称JMC)船员工资小组委员会上,就国际劳工组织(the International Labour Organization,简称ILO)规定的最低船员工资进行了审查工作。
 
       会议决定,在今后三年内将船员的最低工资提高27美元。工资总额将比目前的614美元增长4.5%,截至2019年7月1日增加4美元,2020年1月1日增加7美元,最后于2021年1月1日增加16美元。
 
       该变化是因为考虑到了614美元的工资低于会议上ILO报告中所述的购买力这一情况。尤其是出于对经济预测和航运业不稳定等因素的考虑。
 
       船员发言人Mark Dickinson承认:“这是一次艰难的谈判,双方就航运业和船员的未来做出了两种截然不同的评价。”
 
       “船东方面强烈反对大幅增加船员工资。然而,我感到高兴的是,最终是实用主义和常识占了上风,社会各方共同努力并认可了船员在该行业中所起的基础作用。”
 
       他还表示:“我们将继续共同努力以确保作为这次谈判基础的ILO方案是公平的,且能够反映船员的实际情况,但本届JMC谈判会议对全球航海界的影响无疑是良好且公平的。”

Deal Reached on Higher Seafarer Wages
 
Seafarers across the globe can look forward to higher wages as international bodies reached an
agreement on an overall increase of 4.5 percent of minimum wage for an able seafarer.
 
Following two days of negotiations, the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) and the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS), convened in Geneva at the Joint Maritime Commission (JMC) subcommittee on seafarers wages to review the International Labour Organization (ILO)’s minimum seafarer wage.
 
It has been agreed to update the minimum wage for an able seafarer by USD 27 over the next three years. The wages will provide an overall increase of 4.5 percent on the current rate of USD 614, with an increase of USD 4 as of July 1, 2019, followed by an increase of USD 7 as of January 1, 2020 and a final increase of USD 16 as of January 1, 2021.
 
The change was ascribed due to the calculation that the USD 614 wage was below the purchasing power stated in the ILO report prepared for the meeting. This is in particular due to economic forecasts and the volatility of the shipping industry.
 
“This was a difficult negotiation with two very different assessments about what the future holds for shipping and seafarers,” admitted Mark Dickinson, spokesperson for the seafarers’ group.
 
“There was strong opposition from the shipowners’ side for a significant increase. However, I am pleased that at the end pragmatism and common sense prevailed and the social partners worked their way forward to recognise the fundamental role seafarers play within the industry.
 
“We will continue to work together to find ways to ensure that the ILO formula used as the basis for these negotiations is fair and reflects the reality for seafarers, but the impact of this session of the JMC negotiation on the global seafaring community is undoubtedly a good and equitable result,” he added.
