MWUN maintained that the decision is due to the Federal Government’s refusal to engage and reach agreement with the Organised Labour on critical issues of fuel subsidy removal leading to economic hardship on Nigerians.

“The Maritime Workers Union as an affiliate of the NLC, is 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.”
