Speaking shortly after a meeting with management of the bonded terminal, President General of MWUN, Comrade Adewale Adeyanju said that Clarion terminal management also apologised to the union for the delay saying it was due to a mix up.

Recall that the union had on Friday shut down operations at the terminal following five months unpaid salary of its members.

The union deployed senior members of the union including the President General to the terminal to register its displeasure over withholding of the salaries of members.

The union stated that management of the terminal did not waste time in paying up the said arrears even as it apologised to the union for the delay

Speaking further, MWUN said the terminal had pledged to subsequently work in harmony with the union even as the union promised to lend it’s hand of support for the terminal.

“Port operation is like that sometimes that the correspondences that supposed to come here did not come to the headquarter but sent to the district’s.

“The district which is having cordial relationship with their employers, they did not report to us here. It was when the matter was blown out of hand that the guys concerned came here by themselves, we took it over by ourselves.

“She has apologised and my own is for her to pay, there is no need to for me to drag it further.”

The Clarion boss , Mrs. Bernardine Eloka who spoke with our correspondent on the sideline noted that there was a communication hitch between both parties noting that letters were written to the inappropriate office of the union. .

She explained that lack of proper communication led to the mix up adding that normalcy has since returned to the terminal.
