The problem of changing crews - they denounce Confitarma and Assarmatori and Federagenti - it is becoming absolutely unsustainable

Despite pressure from the shipping industry and unions, they point out, there was no sign Positive

Italian shipowners Confitarma and Assarmatori and the National Federation of Maritime Agents drew attention to the issue of the change of crews of the ships, problem -- they pointed out in a note -- that "it's becoming absolutely unsustainable, because now for many thousands of Italian seafarers are waiting to be able to re-enter Italy and are exhausted by the psycho-physical forces, while those who should replace them on board cannot embark and then work."

Confitarma and Assarmatori and Federagenti recalled that "in Italy, on the problem of crews still stranded on ships caused by the Covid-19 emergency, the shipping industry together with the trade unions has repeatedly called back attention, asking the government and the relevant ministries to convene with the utmost urgency a table of comparison for share the issues and identify solutions but - have reported -- to date, no signal has been recorded positive in this regard.'

"For months," the president of Confitarma said, "I've been Mario Mattioli - we are calling for rapid and decided by the government to ensure our seafarers safe transit corridors, to get them on board to work and to get them home once the normal period of boarding.'

"It is urgent and a priority," he said. President of Assarmatori, Stefano Messina - intervene for the safeguarding human life at sea and for the safety of human navigation and our ships. Doing nothing would be further underestimation of the strategic importance of the maritime transport and the work of those who guarantee it."

"Shipowners and seafarers," reiterated the President of Federagenti, Gian Enzo Duci -- they've done and are doing their Duty. We are now waiting for a concrete signal."
