International Transport Workers’ Federation and Fishers Rights Network (ITF-FRN) proposed legislation and implementation of Convention on Work in Fishing (C188), which protects fishers’ rights, to the Permanent Secretary of Ministry of Labour during a meeting on Ship to Shore Rights Project.

FRN emphasized on-going problems such as forced and debt bondage, workers being paid less than minimum wage, lack of
clean water and nutrition on fishing boats and dangerous working conditions in the Thai fishing industry.
