Starting from this year 2012, the day 9th May will be a paid holiday for all seafarers working on Indian and foreign flag ships.

It gives great pleasure to the NUSI EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE to announce the celebrations on the occasion of the birthday remembrance of NUSI FOUNDER Mohamed EBRAHIM SERANG on 9th May every year. Every organisation has a beginning and a history. While welfare activities for seafarers are traced since 1896, it was given a proper structure of a trade union by Shri Mohamed Ebrahim Serang in his capacity as Founder President of National Union of Seamen of India (NUSI) in the year 1926.

Today NUSI has set the highest standards and has gone beyond the purview of a normal trade union activity. It is no longer confined to routine activity of any union of fighting for the rights and securing decent wages and terms and conditions for the seafarers. Today with the active support of the shipowners, it is instrumental in initiating welfare activities like training, hospital, resorts, scholarship for children of seafarers, financial assistance to widows of seafarers, loan schemes to become officers etc are a few examples. There have been many personalities who have contributed to what NUSI is today. But all this would not have been possible without the platform provided by Shri Mohamed Ebrahim Serang when he founded the National Union of Seamen of India (NUSI) in the year 1926.

For jobs on ships, sea jobs, maritime jobs and jobs at ship.
