    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.

    The MM&P Women’s Caucus actively supports women’s rights, professional development, networking, and the discussion of all issues specific to women in maritime, including cisgender and transgender women, femmes, and nonbinary people within MM&P and throughout the maritime industry.

    MM&P Women’s Caucus membership is free and open to all MM&P members and delegates.

    Membership is initially limited to women, including cisgender and transgender women, femmes, and nonbinary people within MM&P and ultimately, subject to the decisions of the Women’s Caucus, will be open to all workers throughout the maritime industry interested in promoting women’s issues, empowerment, and professional development.

    Mariners are leaving the Alaska Marine Highway System for jobs in other states or the private sector, MM&P Alaska Representative Shannon Adamson told state lawmakers at a Feb. 24 hearing before the House Transportation Committee.

    The reason is simple: They’re finding jobs that pay more.

    “Qualified mariners are a financial investment,” she told legislators. “They’re finding better jobs in other places and we’re losing those investments.”

    Although AMHS has a more desirable two-weeks-on, two-weeks-off schedule, she says, the Washington State Ferry system offers significantly more pay and Black Ball, which is privately owned, can offer almost double.

    Adamson said so many have already left AMHS that it is no longer possible to maintain an optimal relief schedule.

    AMHS currently employs 78 MM&P members, 58 engineers represented by the Marine Engineers’ Beneficial Association and 303 unlicensed crewmembers represented by the Inlandboatmen’s Union of the Pacific.

    Retention across all three unions that represent ferry workers has declined since 2015, she said, but the drop is most significant among engineers.

    IBU Regional Director Earling Walli says there is now a high number of vacancies for unlicensed crewmembers.

    One reason, he said, is that ferries in Alaska don’t run as frequently in the winter and budget cuts have made those sailings even more infrequent, leading mariners to look for jobs elsewhere.

    Gov. Mike Dunleavy (R), who has faced significant public backlash for making drastic cuts to the ferry system’s budget, has said he plans to use federal relief dollars to keep the ferries running.

    Alaska’s congressional delegation has also promised that the bipartisan infrastructure legislation, which President Biden signed into law last November, will bring funds to revitalize the system.

    But the unions say that at this rate, it is not clear whether AMHS will have enough personnel to maintain operations until the funding arrives.

    Adamson suggested that the state shore up hiring and retention by raising wages, revising minimum job qualifications, giving crewmembers year-round jobs and creating a training fund to help pay for qualifications.

    Vice Adm. Jack Buono announced last week that he will retire as superintendent of the US Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point.

    Buono, a 1978 Kings Point graduate, has led the academy since November 2018. He will officially step down during a ceremony in June. A successor has not been announced.

    “For Ginger and I, serving as the Superintendent and First Lady of the Academy has been the honor of a lifetime,” Buono said in a statement.

    “The young women and men who come here are truly the best and brightest America has to offer.”

    Before coming to Kings Point, Buono held leadership roles at ExxonMobil. Between 1978 and 1986, he sailed as a licensed deck officer aboard crude oil and chemical tankers.

    As superintendent, he guided the academy through the pandemic, graduating two classes at the height of the crisis, with the expectation he will do the same with a third graduating class this year.

    In announcing his retirement, he thanked everyone involved in the school.

    “From the staff, faculty and coaches, to the alumni and the parents, to the support staff members that keep the lights on and the water running, I want each of you to know how proud and thankful I am to have served as the leader of this great institution.”

    “Ginger and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Regiment of Midshipmen, the staff, the faculty and the USMMA community-at-large, especially the USMMA Alumni Association and Foundation, and the National Parents Association for your unwavering support these past few years.”

    “We enjoyed our time here, we will remember all of you fondly, and we look forward to continuing to support the regiment, and the Academy into the future.”

    The administration is tightening the “Made in America” rules that President Biden issued during his first days in office.

    The rules aim to ensure that the government purchases as many American-made products as possible.

    “The federal government spends more than $600 billion each year buying goods and services,” the White House said in a statement.

    “President Biden believes that when taxpayers foot the bill, that spending should invest in American workers, manufacturers, and small businesses.”

    Today, products qualify as Made in America if 55 percent of the value of their component parts is manufactured in this country.

    The new rules will boost the threshold to 60 percent this year, 65 percent in 2024, and 75 percent in 2029.

    The White House said the changes will close loopholes in the current regulations and create more opportunities for small and medium businesses.

    The new rules, which take effect on Oct. 25, came on the heels of Biden’s State of the Union address last week during which he emphasized his administration’s “Buy American” efforts.

    “We’ll buy American to make sure everything from the deck of an aircraft carrier to the steel on highway guardrails is made in America from beginning to end,” the president said.

    The administration has created a new Made in America office within the Office of Management and Budget, a website to increase transparency of waivers to domestic purchasing, and a council to coordinate these efforts across the government.

    “Our strategy is working; businesses are investing in American manufacturing at historic rates and our economy has added 400,230 manufacturing jobs since the president came into office,” said Celeste Drake, director of the administration’s Made in America Office.

    The administration is working in tandem with the Made in America rules to support the development and expansion of domestic supply chains for critical products.

    The National Maritime Center will make staff available to provide examination services to merchant mariners in Guam from April 4 to 15, 2022.

    The exams will be hosted at the Coast Guard Recruiting Office located at 1657-A, Santa Rita, 96915, Guam.

    Examinations will be provided by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, please contact Regional Examination Center Honolulu at: rechonolulu@uscg.mil.

    Mariners who wish to test during this period must notify REC Honolulu no later than March 28 and provide a valid approval to test letter issued by NMC.

    Mariners who have not submitted their merchant mariner credential application or received approval to test should contact REC Honolulu immediately to coordinate submission and review.

    Two exam sessions will be held each weekday from 7:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and 12 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

    Please arrive at the examination location 30 minutes before your scheduled testing.

    Be advised that mariners may choose to begin testing in either the morning or afternoon examination session and thereafter must complete their remaining examination modules in consecutive sessions.

    In addition to administering examinations, REC Honolulu staff will be available to answer questions and accept MMC applications.

    The NMC Customer Service Center is available from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday.

    The U.S. has issued a maritime advisory on the risk of collateral damage linked to military combat operations in the Black Sea and Sea of Azov. The advisory states in part:

    Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in late February, there have been reports of multiple commercial vessels being struck by projectiles and/or experiencing explosions in Ukrainian ports, and in the northwestern Black Sea off the coast of Ukraine.

    There have also been reports of naval mines in the water near Odesa. There is a high risk of damage to U.S.-flagged commercial vessels in this region.

    U.S.-flagged commercial vessels should avoid entering or approaching the Sea of Azov, Ukrainian ports, or Ukrainian territorial waters in the northwestern Black Sea.

    Vessels operating near these areas are advised to exercise caution, conduct a risk assessment; review security measures; review current NATO Shipping Center, NAVAREA III and other local broadcast warnings; and incorporate appropriate protective measures into their vessel security plans.

    U.S. maritime advisories are posted at https://go.usa.gov/xtHYH.

    International Transport Workers’ Federation and the Joint Negotiating Group of maritime employers have designated areas in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov as “Warlike Operations Areas.”

    The designation triggers entitlements for seafarers covered under the International Bargaining Forum, the only collective bargaining agreement for international seafarers aboard some 9,000 ships.

    Warlike Operations Areas were designated for the Sea of Azov (north of latitude 46°N), the Northern Black Sea Region and all ports in Ukraine.

    This means that seafarers aboard IBF ships are entitled to receive:

    — bonus equal to basic wage, payable for five days minimum + per day if longer;

    — doubled compensation for death and disability;

    — right to refuse sailing, with repatriation at company’s cost and compensation equal to two months’ basic wage.

    Due to the rapidly developing situation, the ITF and JNG said that all aspects of the designations will be revisited every two weeks.

    In addition to the establishment of the “Warlike Operations Areas” around Ukraine and adjacent waters, the ITF and JNG committed to hold discussions to monitor and review mechanisms to ensure seafarers’ safety and security in the evolving crisis.

    The ITF and JNG also agreed to increase pressure on governments to waive visas for Ukrainian seafarers to ease their repatriation.

    The IMO convened an extraordinary session on Tuesday to address the impact on seafarers and shipping of the situation in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov.

    The special session, which is being held remotely, convened as fears increase for seafarers trapped in the area, especially in the vicinity of Odesa, which Russia is believed to be targeting for an imminent assault.

    Last week an Estonian merchant ship was sunk and a seafarer from Bangladesh was killed by a missile attack while he was on watch.

    Ukraine has closed its ports, which means merchant ships do not have access to tugs or harbor pilots for provisioning or departure.

    NATO is also warning that the waters around Ukraine may be mined.

    Security analysts have urged ships able to depart to quickly leave the newly declared “warlike area” in the northern Black Sea.

    Bloomberg estimated last week that there were 140 stranded vessels, with a total of about 1,000 crewmembers on board, in or near Ukrainian ports.

    Also of concern are thousands of Ukrainian and Russian seafarers who are working at sea, as well as seafarers in the combat zone who can’t get to their ships.

    After the third engineer aboard the BANGLAR SAMRIDDHI was killed in the March 2 missile attack, Bangladeshi authorities arranged for the remaining 28 crewmembers and the body to be disembarked and transported to Moldova for repatriation.

    IMO Secretary-General Kitack Lim has said he is “gravely concerned about the spillover effects of the military action in Ukraine on global shipping” and “fully supports and stands with UN Secretary-General António Guterres’ call for hostilities to cease immediately.”

    The International Longshore and Warehouse Union announced last week that its 20,000 members will not load or unload Russian vessels or Russian cargo.

    “Russia’s large-scale invasion of Ukraine is an act of aggression that endangers a population of more than 40 million people, including millions of innocent men, women, and children,” the ILWU Coast Committee said in a statement.

    “Accordingly, effective immediately, the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, some 20,000 workers strong in 29 ports up and down the United States West Coast, will refuse to load or unload any Russian vessels or Russian cargo coming into or going out of all West Coast ports from Bellingham, Washington to San Diego, California.”

    “With this action in solidarity with the people of Ukraine, we send a strong message that we unequivocally condemn the Russian invasion, the fueling of nuclear tensions by any country, and the imperilment of Ukraine’s citizens.”
