Adoption of the Maritime Labour Convention
Session of the International Labour Conference, which took place in Geneva from 7 to 23 February 2006, dealt exclusively with the maritime sector.
The Conference set an objective of unprecedented ambition, namely the
adoption of a global international convention encompassing almost all the
conventions and recommendations on maritime labour currently in force (more
than 60 texts) with a view to ensuring decent working conditions in an
increasingly globalized sector.
The convention has not yet entered into force.
