Iranian Merchant Mariners Syndicate (IMMS) is a non-governmental organization dedicated to defending the right of seafarers to a decent working condition and fair wages.

The above goal is generally achieved by means of Collective Bargaining Agreements with shipping companies and manning agencies.

Furthermore, IMMS follows up on any and all cases of misdeed, default, neglect or failure of companies in meeting their lawful obligations, reported by seafarers.
