As we mark International Migrants Day, Thai Union has begun trialing its new ‘Comic Contracts’ for fishers working on Thai vessels.

For workers from other countries who may have difficulties reading Thai, these contracts – developed by Creative Contracts – use pictures and simple graphics to convey the content of the contracts, making them easier to understand. The comic contract trial will support fishing vessels to ensure the required content meets Thai legislation and also the implementation of the ILO C188 Work in Fishing Convention.

Since 2019, Nestlé, The The J.M. Smucker Co. and Mars Petcare have been working with us to collaboratively fund projects to improve the working conditions of fishermen on vessels.

The contracts are part of Thai Union’s commitment to ensure that our workers are safe, legally employed and empowered.
