Danish Maritime Officers to sue the government in DIS flag case

The Danish Maritime Officers union will sue the Danish government, unless the Tax Ministry takes the side of the Danish ship officers in the ongoing case against the Danish Shipowners’ Association together with several shipping companies, says CEO Fritz Ganzhorn, of the Danish Maritime Officers, to ShippingWatch.

The Danish Maritime Officers will sue the Danish government in relation to the DIS case (Danish International Ship Register). Earlier this year, the union, which represents approximately 3,200 Danish ship officers, sued the Danish Shipowners Association along with a series of shipping companies, regarding the lack of wage compensation that the DIS legislation – according to the union – requires when changes are made to the Danish tax laws.

Initially, the government, represented by the Tax Ministry, is urged to take the Danish Maritime Officers’ side in the case. If this does not happen, the Tax Ministry will be sued along with the shipping companies.
