Ship horns sounding at noon to recognise seafarers
Guy Platten, secretary general of the ICS said: “Our seafarers are the unsung heroes of global trade and we must not forget the contribution that they are making every day to keep our countries supplied with the goods that we need.
"The sounding of a ships’ horn in ports on the day that the world recognises the contribution of workers in an ideal way to remind us all of their sacrifice. They are all Heroes at Sea.”
Stephen Cotton, general secretary of the ITF said: “The ITF welcomes this initiative and calls on seafarers to sound their ships’ horns in a global expression of solidarity, but importantly to also ensure that the spotlight remains on how critical seafarers are to ensure that essential goods continue to be transported around the world during this crisis."
