Car carriers

Car carriers

Nautilus members can be found on car carriers all over the world, and there is a particular concentration of members on vessels operating between European ports. Personnel numbers vary, but will be lower than the crew complement on passengerships, and tend not to go much beyond the legal minimum safe manning requirement for a vessel.

On car carriers, the personnel most likely to be Nautilus members are shipmasters and ship’s officers (navigation, engineering and electro-technical).  Where other unions do not organise, Nautilus will accept ratings as members.

Collective bargaining agreements

Nautilus has collective bargaining (recognition) agreements with companies in this sector including those listed. For company-specific bulletins and other documents for members, please log in to the Members area. There is more about how collective bargaining works on the We organise and We negotiate pages.
