New Quick Poll: Minimum wage for seafarers

24 May 2022

A new consultation has been published, which is seeking feedback on new legislation regarding the protection of wages paid to seafarers. The new laws would mean that, when in UK waters, seafarers would be paid an equivalent to, at least, the national minimum wage (NMW). 

The CIPP’s policy team will be responding to the consultation, and wants to include feedback from members and the wider payroll community, so has published a new Quick Poll on the News Online page to gather your opinions. This is your opportunity to have your say, and to shape the content of the CIPP’s official consultation response. 

The Quick Poll should take less than a minute to respond to, and we would like to thank you in advance for your participation. 

Similarly, the documents released in relation to the Queen’s speech, held on 10 May 2022, confirmed a new Harbours (Seafarers’ Remuneration) Bill. This will aim to deter organisations from carrying out actions like P&O Ferries, who sacked hundreds of workers to replace them with cheaper agency workers.
