Nigerian union threatens dock strike

The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) has threatened to withdraw all its members from the seaports nationwide if the federal government does not carry out emergency fixes on all access roads to ports, particularly the Apapa port, by Monday, February 5th.

Union President-General, Adewale Adeyanju this week called on the federal government to remove all the trucks on Oshodi-Apapa Dual Carriage Way and to fill the craters and potholes on the access roads to all the ports. “If by Monday, February 5th 2018, the trucks are not removed and the craters and potholes filled, the union will withdraw all its members from the ports nationwide until these two demands are met”, he said.
