A number of Danish maritime HR professionals who work with crewing have not specifically learned about international maritime labour relations in the course of their education and career. Therefore this article presents the three main actors in this field: International Transport Workers' Federation (ITF), International Shipping Federation (ISF) and International Maritime Employers' Committee (IMEC). After this, the article discusses national variations in maritime labour relations in key countries, and it concludes with remarks about maritime labour relations in the future.
