ITF inspectors will board flag of convenience vessels and boycotts and demonstrations will be held by dock and seafarer unions across two dozen countries, ITF said in a statement. A similar action two years ago resulted in nearly 600 ships being inspected and the recovery of more than $1.5 million in owed pay for seafarers, the ITF said.
