Seaman's Union - late 1800's-1900

My great-grandfather's obit stated that he belonged to the Seaman's Union. He died in 1900 and at that time was a sailor on board the SS Chalmette sailing from New Orleans to Cuba. Is it possible that there may be rosters of members? Would it have been an international union or a local union?
I am grateful for any help.
