Nautilus is also helping members directly and providing information to seafarers on the impact of the Ukraine conflict.
The link to this information on their website under the Ukraine conflict topic is here.
To find out more about Nautilus and what it offers members in the yacht sector, visit the yacht hub here.
The Union is also now advising on issues such as whether yacht crew would be considered to be breaking e.g. UK law if they continued to work for an employer subject to sanctions. People seeking advice and support from Nautilus are being reminded that they must be paid-up members if they want individual help with their case.
Please do not hesitate the ISS office here if you have any questions. Thank you.
