The Joint Maritime Commission’s Subcommittee on Wages of Seafarers is a bipartite meeting between representatives of the seafarers and the shipowners. Government representatives do not normally attend or take part and the composition of the sub-Committee should not be influenced by Governments.

The participants who attend are a matter only for the seafarers and the shipowners groups respectively and those who attend the sub-Committee will be recognised as being representative of their sector by the social partners and the ILO.
