La Convention du travail maritime 2006 : Traitement à terre des plaintes déposées par les gens de mer

Abstract : On 23 February 2006, the 94th International Labour Conference (Maritime) adopted the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006, which sets out the conditions for decent work in the increasingly globalized maritime sector. An ambitious part of the Convention consists of the fifth Title, which is called “Compliance and enforcement”. It introduces an onshore seafarer complaint-handling procedure. The aim of this procedure is to give seafarers the ability to report an allegation of a breach of the requirement of the Convention to an “authorized officer” who shall undertake an initial investigation. The authors of the Convention consider that this procedure “takes account to the need to ensure a practical means of redress for the seafarer” (ILO, Report I(1A) Adoption of an instrument to consolidate maritime labour standards, Geneva, 2006, p. 59). But it also asks practical questions concerning the investigations (Who is this authorized officer ?, Is it coherent with the other investigations of the port state control ?...) and the legal and jurisdictional consequences (Which penalties ? What are the effects of the national and European processual guarantees ?). We propose to analyse the onshore seafarer complaint-handling procedure regarding from the French legal system.
