Abstract:
Singapore Maritime Officers’ Union (SMOU) has been safeguarding the interests and wellbeing of seafaring officers for over 50 years. The primary role of SMOU is to look after members’ employment and working conditions through the terms and conditions of collective bargaining agreements negotiated on behalf of members and signed with shipping companies which employ them. In the beginning, the Malay Marine Officers’ Association (MMOA) comprising of local trade masters and mates was registered on 22 March 1951. In 1955, MMOA was renamed Malaysian Ship Officers’ Union (MSOU) to better reflect a multi-racial representation. In December 1970, Malaysian Ship Officers’ Union (MSOU) became affiliated to the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC). The following year, it gained international recognition by becoming affiliated to the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF). On 22 August 1972, MSOU was renamed Singapore Maritime Officers’ Union (SMOU). Its website posts news of its activities, programmes, training courses, leisure pursuits, as well as information on its history, membership, welfare benefits, educational programmes, study grants, industrial relations activities, Seafarers' Provident Fund and employment opportunities.
