OIL SPILL VESSELS' CREWMEMBERS VOTE UNION

 CAMP SPRINGS, Md., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The crewmembers of a 16- ship fleet engaged in oil spill response work voted for representation by the Seafarers International Union (SIU), it was announced today.
 The vote was conducted by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) on each vessel on Sept. 2. Ballots were counted yesterday afternoon at the Washington office of the NLRB.
 Crewmembers of the oil spill response vessels are employed by Dyn Marine Services, a subsidiary of DynCorp. Dyn Marine operates the 16 ships on behalf of the Marine Spill Response Corporation (MSRC).
 Voting on each vessel were all crewmembers, with the exception of the captain and chief engineer. Eligible to vote were 111 crewmembers. The vote tally was 47 for union representation, 43 against and one challenged ballot.
 As crewmembers have chosen through this vote to be represented by a union in the area of wages, hours and working conditions, the SIU and Dyn Marine will commence negotiations for a labor agreement in the near future.
 The SIU represents seamen and boatmen on U.S.-flag vessels plying the oceans, Great Lakes and domestic inland and coastal waterways.
