Dockworkers Call Off Warning Strike… After Just 3-Days

The dockworkers arm of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) has called off a three-day warning strike it commenced on Monday, after workers downed tools to press home their demands for increase in wages.

Confirming the suspension of the strike yesterday, dockworkers branch president of MWUN, Comrade Adewale  Adeyanju,  said the dockworkers have been directed to go back to work.

He said: “The strike has been called off and the workers have been asked to go back to work after the terminal operators promised to meet out demands. We have given them seven days ultimatum to meet our demand or we embark on full scale strike.”

The negotiation for wage increase between the workers and terminal operators started late last year.

Speaking on the dockworkers’ strike action, Seaport Terminal Operators of Nigeria (STOAN) Chairman, Princess (Dr.) Vicky Haastrup, said that the strike has affected terminal operations and the revenue of her members.
