|Comments and Observations:||ITF (22 July 2022)|
3rd Engineer was signed-off on 17th June 2022 and received all his owed wages. Since then the Master has asked for ssistance but did not follow up with any details, and we have not heard any complaints from any other crew member.
The crew are not united and not seeking ITF ‘s help. Also the Master and the Chief officer are not cooperative. Wages accounts and other requested documents not made available. Only one crew member is communicating. Information about the actual owed salaries still lacking.
