Nautilus International's members are the lifeblood of its membership. As a democratic Union, we encourage you to have your say and help us give seafarers and inland waterway workers a national and international voice.

We offer members a range of opportunities to participate in the democracy of the Union. For example, you can vote on Union policy – and elect lay representatives, members of the Council and the general secretary.

At companies where Nautilus has a collective bargaining agreement, you can participate in negotiations on pay and conditions of employment.

And you are always welcome at Nautilus conferences and forums – where as well as helping to make policy, you can take advantage of networking opportunities with fellow members and senior figures from our industry.

Interested? This section shows how you can get more closely involved with your Union.
