The U.S. and twelve other countries have issued a joint statement warning the Houthis against further attacks on ships in the Red Sea and demanding the release of the GALAXY LEADER and its 22-person crew.

The Jan. 3 statement said the Houthis “will bear the responsibility of the consequences should they continue to threaten lives, the global economy, and the free flow of commerce in the region’s critical waterways.”

The statement was released a day after the Houthis claimed to have targeted a CMA CGM vessel, MV TAGE, which was en route from Singapore to Alexandria, Egypt.

The company rebutted the claim, releasing a statement saying that its ship “had not suffered any incident.”

Reuters reported on Jan. 9 that CMA CGM is continuing with its plan to gradually increase the number of vessels returning to routes through the Red Sea and the Suez Canal.

Other major carriers, including Maersk, are rerouting some of their vessels.

“The situation is constantly evolving and remains highly volatile, and all available intelligence confirms that the security risk continues to be at a significantly elevated level,” Maersk said in the most recent update posted to its website.

Adding to the tension is the behavior of Iran, which supports the Houthis and said last month that it was sending a warship to the Red Sea.

The U.K., Greece, and Sri Lanka have announced in recent days that they are adding warships to the U.S.-led coalition that was formed to stop the attacks.

Denmark has also announced it will deploy a frigate to the effort.

India and Pakistan have said they have sent or will send warships to the region, primarily to escort their own containerships.

Marines belonging to India’s Navy rescued all 21 members of the crew of the Liberia-flag bulk carrier MV LILA NORFOLK, which was boarded by pirates on Jan. 4.

Officials said they had responded to the hijacking by deploying the warship INS CHENNAI, several maritime patrol aircraft, and a long-range drone.

INS CHENNAI was diverted from its anti-piracy patrol to intercept the hijacked vessel in the North Arabian Sea.

“The Indian Navy’s marine commandos present onboard the mission-deployed warship boarded the merchant vessel and have commenced the sanitization operation,” a Navy official reported.

The crew of MV LILA NORFOLK had sent a message via the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations portal indicating that five or six unknown armed individuals had boarded the vessel.

About 15 members of the crew are reportedly of Indian nationality. India has said it would focus its efforts to protect shipping on vessels with its nationals on board.

“The Indian Navy remains committed to ensuring safety of merchant shipping in the region along with international partners and friendly foreign countries,” the Navy said.

The Liberia-flag MV CHEM PLUTO was the target of a drone attack off India’s west coast on Dec. 23.

Another commercial oil tanker that was on the way to India came under a suspected drone strike in the Southern Red Sea on the same day.

The Indian Navy said it continues to monitor the security situation in the North and Central Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Aden.

“Indian Naval ships and aircraft remain mission deployed for maintaining enhanced surveillance and undertaking maritime security operations,” it said, adding that “in the last week, Indian Naval Task Groups deployed in the area have investigated large number of fishing vessels and boarded vessels of interest.”

American President Lines is continuing the renewal of its U.S.-flag fleet.

The company says the delivery and phase-in of the replacement ships will take place on a monthly basis, with the last vessel tentatively scheduled to join the APL fleet in December 2024.


The outgoing ships will be the ROOSEVELT, EISENHOWER, KENNEDY, TRUMAN, and CLEVELAND.

The ships will be crewed by members of MM&P, MEBA, SIU, SUP, and MFOW.

Bipartisan legislation has been introduced in Congress to promote the export of liquified natural gas and crude oil on vessels that are built, flagged, and crewed by Americans.

The Energizing American Shipbuilding Act was introduced in the Senate by Mississippi Republican Roger Wicker and Pennsylvania Democrat Bob Casey.

Companion legislation has been introduced in the House of Representatives by California Democrat John Garamendi and Virginia Republican Rob Wittman.

The bill would require that vessels built in the U.S. transport 15 percent of total seaborne LNG exports by 2043 and 10 percent of total seaborne crude oil exports by 2035.

If enacted, it would spur the construction of dozens of ships, supporting thousands of well-paying jobs in American shipyards and throughout the maritime industry.

“There is a global energy demand and if the United States does not step up to the plate, our adversaries will fill the void,” Wicker said. “This bill is a win-win for our economy and jobs.”

Casey said enactment of the legislation would be “an investment in our national defense, the economic competitiveness of American shipbuilders and mariners, and the communities they call home.”

“While I support the long-term transition to a global economy powered by clean energy, I believe strongly that any continued U.S. exports of petroleum and natural gas should be on American-built vessels,” Garamendi said.

“American shipyards and mariners are ready for the job, and our bipartisan bill ensures they are no longer expected to compete against heavily subsidized foreign shipyards in Korea, China, and elsewhere.”

Wittman called the bill a way to “break free from foreign subsidy competition and revitalize our merchant fleet.”

MM&P and the AFL-CIO Transportation Trades Department are among the groups that have endorsed the legislation.

A fire that started early Monday morning aboard a Panama-flag containership in the Port of Houston killed two members of the crew and left a third in critical condition.

The Coast Guard and the local fire department reported Monday afternoon that the fire had been extinguished, and that an investigation into what caused it was underway.

Witnesses said a fuel barge was alongside the vessel, the containership MV STRIDE, when the fire was first reported at about 0330 local time.

The vessel had arrived in the Port of Houston Sunday from Guatemala and Honduras and was docked at the Barbours Cut Container Terminal.

Firefighters from the Baytown Fire Department who arrived on scene were told that three crewmembers were missing and that the fire was in the engine room.

They searched the vessel to locate the missing crewmembers and arranged for the injured man, who was in critical condition, to be airlifted by Life Flight.

A picture Tweeted by the local TV station shows soot on the rear of the funnel. The fire was extinguished and did not spread.

The Coast Guard and the Port of Houston Fire Department said they planned to monitor the vessel for at least the next 24 hours.

A warm start to the winter has translated into the lowest level of ice cover in at least five decades for the Great Lakes, CNN has reported.

Just 0.35 percent of the water was covered in ice on New Year’s Day, well below the historical average of about 9 percent for this point in winter, according to data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory.

On New Year’s Day 2023, more than 4 percent of the Great Lakes was covered in ice, while 2.35 percent was covered in ice on Jan. 1, 2022.

“The amount of ice cover varies from year to year, as well as how long it remains on the lakes,” the research lab noted on its website, adding that scientists are observing long-term changes in ice cover as a result of global warming.

“It’s certainly very low for this time of year,” James Kessler, a physical scientist at GLERL, told CNN.

It was the warmest December on record for several cities along the Great Lakes, including Buffalo, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Erie, Pa., Green Bay, Wis., and Duluth, Minn.

But it’s still early in the season, Kessler said, and a sustained blast of Arctic air could cause ice coverage to increase markedly.

Peak ice in the Great Lakes typically occurs in late February or early March.

Kessler and others have said that a future of less ice could make the shipping season longer.

“The commercial shipping industry is like a multibillion-dollar industry, and so less ice cover is good for them,” he told CNN.

“Often, the freighters get stuck when it’s a high year, and the Coast Guard has to go rescue them and it’s a huge undertaking. So, from that perspective, low ice is good economically.”

Since record-keeping began in 1973, researchers have found the Great Lakes have been experiencing a significant decline in ice, with the peak coverage dropping by about 5 percent each decade.

Under a new agreement with the AFL-CIO, Microsoft has pledged to remain neutral if its 100,000-plus U.S.-based workers seek to unionize.

“Never before in the history of these American tech giants, dating back 50 years or so ago, has one of these companies made a broad commitment to labor rights,” says AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler.

The software giant has also agreed to work with unions to prevent jobs being eliminated by the spread of artificial intelligence.

According to a recent AFL-CIO poll, 70 percent of American workers worry about being replaced by AI.

“This ground-breaking partnership honors the rights of workers, learns from the advice of labor leaders as we develop technology, and helps us provide people with the skills that will become essential in a new AI era,” said Microsoft President Brad Smith.

The agreement calls for incorporating worker perspectives into the development of AI technology and lobbying Congress for policies that support the skills and needs of front-line workers.

Work begins in winter 2024 with a series of Microsoft-hosted sessions with AI experts who will provide labor leaders and workers in selected sectors with information about where the technology is going and analyze the potential challenges and opportunities.

The sessions will include digital resources for participants to access online.

To help ensure that the expertise and perspectives of workers inform the work of developers, the partners have developed a mechanism for them to directly share insights, concerns, and feedback.

The two organizations will work together in Congress to support the expansion of registered apprenticeships, particularly in nontraditional tech occupations.

Both partners acknowledge that AI creates an opportunity to improve jobs if it is used to enhance work rather than to diminish people’s agency and responsibilities.

Masters, Mates & Pilots is one of the 60 affiliates of the AFL-CIO, the democratic, voluntary federation that represents 12.5 million working Americans.
