in writing. - I have voted for the motion for a resolution on the agreement on the implementation of the work in fishing convention, as it welcomes the fact that the Agreement as concluded by the social partners and the Commission proposal provide only for minimum requirements, allowing Member States and/or social partners to adopt measures which are more favourable to workers in the area concerned; notes that this agreement also applies to self-employed fishers working alongside workers on the same vessel; underlines the need to develop those provisions related to wages, social protection and social security in order to ensure an adequate and decent income for workers and their families, including in the case of injury, accident or death; highlights the importance of establishing the mechanisms for implementation of the agreement, including the development of appropriate inspection and enforcement measures.
