Concerns for Starving Crew Aboard BHP Ship

The International Transport Workers’ Federation has expressed concern for crew aboard the Villa Deste, a ship at a BHP terminal off the coast of Queensland.  An email was sent by a crew member to the ITF earlier this month with the subject title “Help Us.” The desperate plea claims that crew members aboard the ship are receiving no salary and only $4 a day for food.  We were joined by Dean Summers, the National Coordinator for the International Transport Workers’ Federation to discuss the situation unfolding.
