The MUA is seeking support from comrades and friends in lodging a supplementary submission to AMSA on the consultation draft of Marine Order 3 (Seafarer qualification)-MO3.

It is critical to our Union that as many supporters as possible lodge the petition to AMSA to ensure the retention of appropriately skilled Australian seafarers in Australian shipping and to demonstrate to AMSA and employers that we will not accept an undermining of, or de-skilling, of the Integrated Rating occupation in the Australian shipping industry.

The submission we are urging your support for endorses the MUA primary submission, lodged on 29 August, which can be viewed/downloaded at the MUA website. To support the MUA submission friends can go to the MUA website at and click on the link or click on the link below

Supplementary submissions must be lodged by the 4th September. We would ask that you go to the website now and sign the petition supporting the MUA submission on Marine Order 3.

Your assistance in this matter will be greatly appreciated.

Yours In Unity

  1. The expansion in this market has also had a huge affect on the types
    of materials used in the creation and making of jewelry.
    A Peridot fine jewelry piece can not only be a great
    gift as far as a nice piece of jewelry, but also in the sense of having a strong spiritual meaning.
    Talking about facts, the color of the pure topaz is
    white but you can see it in various colors these days varying from blue to red.
