Maritime Workers Threaten Pullout Nationwide

Maritime Workers Threaten Pullout Nationwide


There are strong indications that the Maritime Workers of Nigeria (MWUN) may shut down port operations nationwide from tomorrow (17 December), and begin an indefinite strike over a number of longstanding issues.

At the weekend, the union notified the relevant authorities - such as the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), the Nigerian Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) and terminal operators – of the intention to shut down the ports, if the latest ultimatum given to the government to address the pending issues passed without any action yesterday (15 December).
