Brief Note On NUSI & NUSI Welfare Projects :

National Union of Seafarers of India (NUSI) is more than 100 year old institution. It is probably the only trade union organization in India to have celebration centenary.

A group of seamen , who have remained unknown in the sense that their names are not available, took the first heroic step of organizing Indian seamen & formed Goa Portuguese Seamen’s Club way back in December 1896. It is their thought, efforts & financial stability of NUSI. NUSI has history, tradition & a legacy of striving for the betterment of Indian seafarers in all respects- industrial, economic, social & individual.
