In a recent post, I showed how Filipino seafarers were being short-changed big time on their dollar remittances. How could such brazen cheating by unscrupulous manning agents be allowed to happen? I share the anguish and anger of those affected, so I have published a free guide which I hope will benefit seafarers everywhere.

What Seafarers Should Know About Remittances consists of just seven pages (including cover) with four sections:

• The Rules on Remittances Under ILO Maritime Labour Convention, 2006

• Philippines: Rules on Remittances of Filipino Seafarers

• India: Remittance Rules for Indian Seafarers

• What seafarers can do if they are being short-changed in the conversion of their dollars or their family allotments are unduly delayed.

There is probably little that can be done to check the greed of those who covet the dollars of seafarers. Nevertheless, I hope this little guide will serve to enlighten seafarers about their rights in regard to remittances — and to stand up for those rights.
