Jordania - Jordanian ship bans workers from talking to authorities (2012)

In January, the International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) reported its dispute with the Jordanian owners of the flag of convenience live sheep carrier Bader 3 currently in dock in Fremantle, Australia. While the ship had a current agreement with the ITF for wages and conditions for the 80 mainly Pakistani crew, the ITF had received documentation that the agreement had been breached for an entire year and the crew had been forced to sign papers which surrender their right to shore leave. “Harsh punishment” was threatened for any crew who talked to Australian authorities. The crew had been paid less than half of their entitlements.
