The leadership of the Maritime Workers’ Union of Nigeria (MWUN) has requested that the federal government should extend the palliatives it intends to members of the union saying that are the people keeping the port working.

In a statement by the Head, Media of MWUN, Com. John Kennedy Ikemefuna,the President General of the union, Prince Dr. Adewale Adeyanju said that in the light of the fuel subsidy removal which has had negative impact on the economy, the members of the union be considered for payment of palliative incentives to cushion the effects.

“There’s no gainsaying that the maritime industry is the fulcrum around which the nation’s economy revolves. This is knowing too well that products which fill our markets, the energy that propel our factories and resources that sustain our people flow through the maritime veins; yet, amidst this turbulent times, the maritime workforce has been left grappling with uncertainties battling dual challenges of the economic restructuring and the relentlessness at sea. This is a situation that demands not just our empathy but with utmost encouragement.

“In view of the foregoing, MWUN humbly requests that palliative incentives be given our members. Hence, we as a Union suggests that a meeting of MANAGEMENT/UNION be convened to discuss the modalities and when to commence payment.”
