As another extraordinarily difficult year comes to an end, we wish you, your families and friends a safe and happy holiday season.

For the second year running, MM&P members and staff, like so many other people around the world, have been touched by sadness, loss and grief.

Our members continue to do their duty aboard every type of vessel on the oceans of the world and on the inland waters, while our families at home and our representatives, staff and associates—in the hiring halls, the Plan Office, at headquarters, at MITAGS East and West and in the field—continue, as always, to support our membership.

Thank you all for holding fast through another difficult year.

May you enjoy the holidays, in safety, fraternity and hope for a better 2022!

The Maritime Administration has reached an agreement to restart the Sea Year program, which had been suspended in November because of persistent problems with sexual assault and sexual harassment (SASH).

DOT, MARAD, and USMMA sought recommendations on actions to strengthen safety at sea for cadets from a range of stakeholders—including industry, labor, advocacy groups working to combat sexual assault and harassment, Congress, and federal agencies, as well as US Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point midshipmen and alumni.

The announcement that the Sea Year program would resume came last week, when MARAD released a set of more than 30 policy guidelines and a checklist, entitled Every Mariner Builds A Respectful Culture (EMBARC).

The policy requires the ship’s operator to hold regular crewmember trainings; install stateroom door locks; and establish strict standards of reporting.

It includes a zero-tolerance policy for SASH incidents or retaliation and a multi-employer database of the names of mariners accused of SASH offenses.

The new standards replace those implemented by MARAD in 2016 after the first time Sea Year was suspended.

For its part, the USMMA, which is operated by MARAD, will:

— provide extra pre-Sea Year training for cadets;

— assign at least two cadets to every ship; and

— give cadets satellite phone equipment to provide them with voice contact with family, friends, USMMA personnel and other support resources.

In addition, the academy has implemented an amnesty policy, which stipulates that survivors or witnesses who report sexual assault will not be disciplined when alcohol or drugs are involved in the commission of the act.

The six state maritime academies have confirmed their support for the new standards.

“The plan is an initial step, and all parties are committed to continuing to review this program frequently, and to make improvements whenever needed to ensure the safety and success of cadets,” said Acting Maritime Administrator Lucinda Lessley.

In parallel with MARAD’s announcement, the Coast Guard issued a safety bulletin to shipping companies reminding them of their legal obligation to report sexual offenses to the Coast Guard Investigative Service.

The Coast Guard operates a tip line which can be accessed by phone (202-372-2100) and through its website: https://www.uscg.mil/Units/Coast-Guard-Investigative-Service.

“Sexual assault is a crime,” said USCG Rear Adm. John W. Mauger, assistant commandant for prevention policy.

“When the assault occurs onboard a U.S. documented vessel, the Coast Guard must be notified.”

“While the law requires the master or individual in charge of a U.S. documented vessel to make that report, too often sexual assaults go unreported,” he said.

“To overcome this challenge, the Coast Guard encourages all victims and witnesses of sexual assaults onboard U.S. vessels to report directly to the Coast Guard.”

“Safety at sea requires teamwork both aboard vessels and between the vessel and shoreside management.”

“Workplace climates which enable sexual offenses erode trust and teamwork and put mariners’ lives at risk.”

For further information, the new policy and guidelines are posted here.

The state of Alaska will finally move ahead on construction of a new ferry to replace the 57-year-old AMHS TUSTUMENA.

The aging vessel is part of the Alaska Marine Highway System, which is operated by the state Department of Transportation.

The AMHS transports goods, vehicles and passengers between 35 communities, serving as a vital lifeline for many residents who lack access to land-based transportation.

Alaska’s Republican governor, Mike Dunleavy, has cut funding for the state’s ferry system on numerous occasions.

He announced a plan to replace the TUSTUMENA on Dec. 4 as part of what his administration calls a strategy to “re-energize” the AMHS.

The announcement comes five years after the state received the design and specifications package for the replacement vessel.

Alaska will fund construction of the new ferry using money from the bipartisan infrastructure legislation passed by Congress and signed into law by President Biden earlier this year.

The replacement vessel is estimated to cost $200 million to $250 million. Its vehicle and passenger capacity would increase by 40 percent over that of the TUSTUMENA, from 34 to 52 vehicles and from 160 to 250 passengers.

The new ferry is expected to be completed in 2027. In the meantime, the TUSTUMENA will receive $8 million in upgrades starting in December.

The Department of Transportation says it will use the funds to make other improvements to the AMHS including: crew quarters for the MV HUBBARD; backup ferry service for the MV LECONTE while it undergoes annual maintenance; and a targeted recruitment program for maritime workers.

Duplicate Merchant Mariner Credentials may be issued free of charge to mariners whose credentials were lost or destroyed as a result of the recent tornadoes in Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee.

Affected mariners should follow the steps below to obtain an expedited replacement credential:

— Provide a statement of loss to the National Maritime Center via fax at 1-304-433-3412 or via e-mail at IASKNMC@uscg.mil. The statement should contain the following:

– Mariner’s full name

– Mariner’s date of birth

– Mariner’s reference number (MRN)– if you don’t know the MRN, include the mariner’s social security number

– The mailing address that the replacement credential should be sent to

– Current phone number and/or email address that the NMC can use to contact the

mariner with questions, if necessary

– Description of the circumstances surrounding the loss/destruction of the credential.

Unless otherwise requested, any duplicate Merchant Mariner Credentials issued per the request process above will include a corresponding Medical Certificate, if previously issued.

NMC will make every effort to have duplicate credentials mailed out the next business day.

Alternatively, mariners may submit form CG-719B, Application for Merchant Mariner Credential, with the information above, to one of the Regional Exam Centers.

If your credential is unserviceable due to damage or your lost credential is subsequently found, that credential should be mailed to the National Maritime Center.

If you have questions or feedback regarding duplicate credentials, please contact the National Maritime Center at itis Online Chat or Ticketing System, by emailing IASKNMC@uscg.mil, or by calling 1-888-IASKNMC (427-5662).

The World Health Organization and the International Labor Organization are working to implement new, global Covid-19 protocols for transport workers as nations rush to reinstate travel restrictions in response to the emergence of the Omicron variant.

Since it was classified as “a variant of concern” by the WHO, at least 56 nations have tightened travel restrictions. Hasty, unilateral decisions to reimpose restrictions on transport workers could further impede the functioning of supply chains and delay global economic recovery.

“It’s really worrying to see last year’s draconian travel restrictions starting to reappear in many countries, especially as millions of transport workers have been making enormous sacrifices for scant recognition for nearly two years,” said Guy Platten, secretary general of the International Chamber of Shipping, one of the groups seeking to avert a worsening of the crew change situation.

A central focus of the ongoing efforts is creation of a WHO medical passport card so mariners and other transport workers can show proof of vaccination.

“The COVID-19 pandemic remains a public health emergency of international concern that continues to adversely impact human health globally, and international trade and travel,” said WHO Director General Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus.

“It is of critical importance to protect the health of cross border transport workers and maintain travel operations for emergency and humanitarian missions, essential personnel, repatriations, and cargo transport of essential supplies.”

“As we enter peak season for transport workers over Christmas, it is critical that we work collectively to alleviate the strain on our global supply chain,” said ITF General Secretary Stephen Cotton.

“We thank the WHO and ILO for their commitment to work with us, and urge all governments to prioritize vaccinations for transport workers and allow their free and safe movement.”

The International Transport Workers’ Federation has joined forces with two international maritime employer groups to establish a network of “trusted hotels” available for crew quarantines.

The goal is to avoid a worsening of the crew change crisis as governments around the world respond to the spread of the Omicron variant of Covid-19.

In 2020, it was estimated that 400,000 of the world’s seafarers were stuck aboard their vessels past the expiration of their contracts.

The new program, called #CrewEQUIP, is based on a network of quarantine facilities reviewed and inspected by Lloyd’s Register, which is serving as independent external auditor.

The hotels will implement consistent standards and industry-best protocols to safely get crew to and from their vessels.

Some countries, including Singapore and the Philippines, have successfully used quarantine facilities during the past two years to streamline the movement of crews on and off ships.

The new program is a partnership between the ITF, the International Maritime Employers’ Council and the International Chamber of Shipping.

“A successful crew change needs everything to line up across the port States, transit countries, and the right facilities available in place in the home country of seafarers involved,” said ITF Seafarers’ Section Chair Dave Heindel.

“Currently, even seemingly minor alterations to a government’s border, health or quarantine policies can bring a planned crew change to a halt—often leaving a seafarer with no option but to continue working onboard beyond their initial contracts.”

The ITF and the employer groups behind the new initiative say that alongside establishment of the quarantine hotel network, the industry needs a global, permanent system of digital vaccine and testing recognition.

MM&P is one of the nearly 700 transport unions in 150 countries that belong to the ITF.
