VLADIVOSTOK, March 22 (Itar-Tass) — Nineteen sailors from Russia’s Primorsky Territory who for five months have not been paid wages for their work on the Yekaterina transport refrigerator flying the flag of the Republic of Kiribati are in distress in the South Korean port of Masan. The wage debt is about 150 thousand US dollars, Deputy Chairman of the Seafarers’ Union of Russia (SUR) Nikolai Sukhanov told Itar-Tass.
The information about the situation with the crew of the Yekaterina vessel has been passed to the Korean inspector of the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF). He has boarded the vessel and confirmed the amount of the wage debt owed to the Russian sailors. According to him, the Yekaterina vessel belongs to a South Korean ship owner.
On Thursday, the Korean ITF inspector at the request of the Seafarers’ Union of Russia launched negotiations with the owner of the refrigerator on the liquidation of the wages debt to the vessel’s crewmembers. If in the near future the Russian sailors do not receive the money owed to ··them, the refrigerator may be arrested by a court decision.
