MWUN begins nationwide strike midnight Tuesday

...Laments assault of its President

The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) in solidarity with the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) would embark on a nationwide strike beginning from midnight Tuesday 14 Nov., 2023.

In a statement on Monday, the MWUN said the agreement to embark on the industrial action arose from the NLC’s National Executive Council (NEC) meeting on Monday, 13th Nov., 2023, when all affiliates of the Congress were directed to strictly comply.

“The NLC and Trade Union Congress (TUC)  took this decision after their joint meeting in Abuja, which was prompted by a series of infractions and encroachments of the rights of workers, and the distressing incidents involving the abduction and assault on the NLC President, Comrade Joe Ajaero and other Unions’ officials and the continued refusal of government to implement agreements, non-payment of backlog of salaries, pensions, discriminatory payment of salaries and non-compliance to national minimum wage,” the statement reads in part.

The MWUN disclosed that it was geared to commence the nationwide strike as directed by the NLC.
