The 'general cargo' category covers bulk carriers and coasters. Members tend to operate in Europe.
Those on the larger bulk carriers work all over the world. Personnel numbers vary, but tend not to go much beyond the legal minimum safe manning requirement for a vessel.

When Nautilus talks about 'organising', we mean how the Union brings people together in the workplace to negotiate and campaign as a group for better terms and conditions.
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.
