The Maritime Workers’ Union of Nigeria (MWUN) has grounded activities at the AP Moller Terminal (APMT) in Apapa over breach of Nigerian content law.
Recall that the union had issued a seven-day ultimatum to the concessionaires asking it to reverse its plans to outsource security work of the terminal to foreigners.
Failure to respond to the ultimatum, the union Thursday morning, blocked all entrances to the terminal even as it turns back staff from gaining entry into the terminal.
Present at the gates of APMT are the members of the union and the executives carrying placards with inscriptions as “We say no to racism; “We say no to scrapping of any department in out terminal,” among others.
The atmosphere is tense right now as the workers said there is no going back until the terminal reverses to the status quo ante.
