For all merchant vessels subject to the 2006 MLC, the crew must be employed under a Seaman`s Employment Contract (SEA). A crew contract is an employment contract between the owners of a ship or yacht and its crew. The Maritime and Coastal Agency (MCA) provides guidance on the establishment of crew contracts for merchant vessels and yachts: but there is another reason why, even after that date, a foreign agreement drawn up by the MHA or a list might be different from Commitment 1. It would probably be the “office copy,” an agreement that was only reached when a crew was signed. In this case, the crew was never officially disconnected, and the reason could be a boating accident. So this is also an interesting document. It helps to recognize that these contracts reflect a process that has developed over time. The loss of a ship due to sinking is a perfect example of a cut-off process. The office copies survived and were filed because the RGSS did not have the agreement. They are visible because they are printed in red. Elsewhere on this site, you can see examples of desktop copies and previous documents that foreshadowed Commitment 1. Get each crew member to sign the agreement when they join the ship and at the end of the voyage.
However, the differences deserve to publish several examples of colonial agreements on this site. See, for example, the Julia Blake ON 59410, 1872 [by the MHA Website Crew Codes Page] To board a new crew, especially for an extended passage, will likely be made more harmonious if your agreements are made in writing. If the legislation is merely a response to daily developments at sea, the question “What were the interests?” could be answered if we consider what happened in this sector, which made the employment and dismissal of maritime workers desirable. First, shipowners invested larger amounts in vessels that they wanted to install in the most cost-effective and efficient way possible. Second, the imperial government had many reasons for wanting a cheap and efficient means of communication and transport of goods in ships registered in the United Kingdom, the latter being themselves a source of government revenue. Third, while there were always groups of sailors eagerly awaiting a return in time for their work, the arrival of steam and the expansion of a steam transport service made jobs more diverse and arguably more demanding: workers were increasingly defending their rights. Fourth, safety was a concern of all concerned, although passenger transport often imposed this problem. Finally, living conditions in the fo`c`le (forecast) were regulated by commercial law and therefore appeared in different ways in the official documentation. Contracts for the home-based sales team have also evolved in their sophistication. In 1874, the Board of Trade Agreement B combined with home trade List D in a single document, Commitment 6. It was also completed over a specified period, in this case a maximum of six months, during which the men were set up and eliminated. But this kind of agreement worked from the beginning as an ongoing document.
The first chords will be different from those of Brio, but in fact, much of the same information will be contained. The official logbook was a legal brief, kept by the Master, but sometimes transcribed by another hand. Beginning in 1850, captains were required by law to keep records of crew changes, illnesses, births and deaths on board, violations by seafarers of their contractual terms and criminal offences. At sea, the Master`s authority was such that he was called “next after God.”
