Crumlin: the proposed changes would be profitable more difficult for the Australian ships with Australian crew to compete in the segment of the coastal traffics

the International Transport Workers' Federation (ITF) has denounced the attempt of the Australian government to today demolish the national field of the marine services of cabotage having introduced a bill that returns the norms less rigorous on the ships of foreign flag that they obtain temporary permissions in order to operate connections between the Australian ports.

According to the president of the ITF, Paddy Crumlin, that he is also national secretary of Maritime the Union of Australia (MUA), is clear the intention of the government of Canberra to arrange a blow to the Australian national fleet, a strong and efficient fleet - has emphasized - that "is absolutely vital for Australia since nation of the shipping is the main fourth world-wide".

"Shortly - Crumlin has explained - the proposed changes would be profitable more difficult for the Australian ships with Australian crew to compete in the segment of the coastal traffics. Instead strengthening a vital national industry with a long and proud tradition, the government of Turnbull wants to move the job abroad".

"Without rigorous norms - it has continued the president of the ITF - the Australian companies must compete with the foreign job to low cost and taken advantage of the ships that convenience flags beat, the whose owners they do not pay taxes and often violate the laws on safety". "They wade of the taken advantage of crews of the ships with convenience flag - it has added - comes down also until 1,25 dollars to the hour and the crews less are formed and often they are not aware of the fragile Australian coastal atmosphere. They do not satisfy the same requirement relatively to safety applied to the marine Australians and are being profitable vacated the marine Australians replacing them in their job through flags of convenience characterized by insufficient standards of safety and tax evasion".

"the new today's norms - it has still evidenced Crumlin - are not yield of consultations and ignore the proposals advanced from the field through groundbreaking reunions with the main subjects interested happened in the course of along period".

"the Australian workers - he has concluded Crumlin - cannot and the schiavistico job and tax dodger of the system of convenience flag would not have to compete with".
