Lagos: Sea ports shut down, as Maritime workers’ strike enters day two

Jul 04, 2019

The indefinite strike embarked upon by Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria has entered day two.

The workers began the nationwide strike yesterday following the expiration of the 14 day ultimatum issued to the government.

The workers are demanding that the federal government compel the international oil companies to pay over one year’s outstanding wages to dock workers, amongst other issues.

 

The union has also accused international oil companies of not treating dockworkers fairly as workers are owed at least 12 months salary.

Seaports in the country have been shutdown as business activities have been paralysed around the nation’s ports.
