Ship Officers Component

You are here

The Ships' Officers' Component (SOC) is an autonomous component of the BCFMWU. The SOC represents members, regular and casual, who work in positions within BC Ferries for which a Master, Mate, or Engineering Certificate of Competency is required. It is also the representative component for Electrical Officers and Chief Stewards.

The SOC advocates for our members through participation with various bodies that regulate marine matters such as the Canadian Marine Advisory Council (CMAC). They are also active in advocating for Global labour rights in the maritime industry through the International Transport Workers Federation (ITF).
