Model agreements
You, too, can sign an agreement

The ITF and ver.di will conclude agreements for your ships with you. A general collective bargaining agreement on working conditions will contain general regulations. Special Agreements – if applicable, for single ships as well – are based on these general collective bargaining agreements and regulate details such as specific working hours, medical care, etc. These agreements are concluded and renewned annually for each ship. In addition, there are further agreements which, for example, regulate on-board training of cadettes. Finally, an individual employment contract is signed with each seafarer.
