Subject- Revision of Wages for VLCC Senior officers
Good Day Sir,
We the senior officers sailing onboard your good VLCC ships, would like to bring to your notice a grievance regarding the wage difference approximately of 800-1200$ from the market.
We believe in MMSI and have always given our full cooperation in all matters despite all the grievances which we might have had. The one and only grievance which has always been at the top of everybodys minds is the disparity in salaries onboard MMS VLCC's and other companies.
Even when compared to other fleet vessel Chemical or Gas, VLCC wages of Senior officers are on the lower side.
Though all the people have been safarers and have sailed onboard VLCC and recognise the additional detrimental psychological and emotional long term effects that sailing on VLCC have in comparison to other vessel types, hence all companies always give a VLCC allowance which is around 1000$ but our company has never recognised this.
Past few years MMSI has verbally assured us that wages will be revised soon and it will be at par with other fleet vessels and other companies. We patiently waited but the changes has still not been made. The last revision of wages had been in the year 2011.
We humbly request to affect the demand of you own seafarers and revise the wages of a senior officers so that we remain morally and principally motivated.
We hope that we are able to put our point across and it will be considered with the management.
In high anticipation that our serious grievance is recognised.
With Best regards
Senior Officers of MMS fleet
