NLC Strike: MWUN vows shut down of nation’s seaports Monday

The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) has declared its readiness to halt all activities by shutting down the nation’s seaports on Monday, 3 June.

In a statement at the weekend, the Union said that its leadership headed by Prince Adewale Adeyanju “Has obliged to comply with the directive of both the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), to join in the indefinite total lock down of the country commencing from Monday, the 3rd of June, 2024.”

The Union said that it was supporting the proposed indefinite strike due to failure of the Federal Government to address the issue of the national minimum wage negotiation for civil servants as well as the refusal to reverse the hike in electricity tariff.

It added that: “In view of the foregoing, the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria has directed its members in all ports nationwide, jetties, terminals, and oil & gas platforms to effectively ensure the total compliance with the strike as directed by the NLC and TUC. This is also to serve as notice to all our concerned stakeholders in the Maritime sector.”
