Resource Guide

The MM&P Women’s Caucus has published a resource guide to further its mission of effecting change to assure equal rights, respect and safety for all mariners and workers in the maritime industry.

The new guide, “Your Shipmates Are Counting on You: Building a Respectful Maritime Workplace,” includes links to organizations that offer help and support to those who have experienced bullying, harassment or discrimination, as well as advice on what actions to take in the event that you experience bullying or harassment, or witness others being bullied or harassed.

What is a Union?

A union is an organization formed by workers who join together and use their strength to have a voice in their workplace. Through their union, workers have the ability to negotiate from a position of strength with employers over wages, benefits, workplace health and safety, job training and other work-related issues.
