Back to News

SIU members are encouraged to participate in this year’s International Maritime Organization “Day of the Seafarer” online campaign, which takes place June 25.


Click HERE for complete information on the IMO website, including easy instructions on how to post photos.


As the IMO put it, “This year’s campaign will show how the multi-faceted maritime world offers a series of rich and fulfilling career opportunities for young people, both at sea and ashore.” The related Twitter hashtag is #CareerAtSea and there will also be a Facebook component to the campaign.


Seafarers also are encouraged to express the role played by America’s freight cabotage law, the Jones Act, in sustaining maritime careers. In photos and words, share what the Jones Act means to you and your family. If you’re posting on Twitter, please use both the #CareerAtSea hashtag and an additional one: #Cabotage
