NLC Two-Day Warning Strike:
MWUN Mobilizes For A Total Short Down

By Jerry Aguigbo

The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) under the leadership of Comrade (Prince) Dr. Adewale Adeyanju, is mobilizing all its affiliates for a total Short down of the ports. This is in compliance of a two-day warning strike due to commence on Tuesday 5 September and Thursday, as called by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).

In a press statement issued in Lagos today by its Head Public Relations, Comrade John Kennedy Ikemefuna, MWUN categorically stated that
as an affiliate of the NLC, the Union is obliged to comply with the directive from NLC and “has consequently instructed all our members in all ports, Jetties, terminals, and oil & gas platforms nation wide to partake on the TWO-WAY total shut down warning strike as directed by the NLC.”

“This is in notice of a communique of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) directing all its affiliates to embark on a TWO-DAY nation wide strike of a total shutdown scheduled for Tuesday, 5th September and Wednesday 6th September, 2023.”

This decision the statement said, is due to the Federal Government’s refusal to engage and reach agreement with the Organised Labour on critical issues of the consequences of the unfortunate hike in the price of petrol, which has unleashed massive suffering on Nigerian Workers and the generality of the Nigerian citizens.

It added that
“the Maritime Workers Union as an affiliate of the NLC, are obliged to comply with the directive and has consequently instructed all our members in all ports, Jetties, terminals, and oil & gas platforms nation wide to partake on the TWO-WAY total shut down warning strike as directed by the NLC,” MWUN said.
