Maritime workers under the aegis of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) on Monday announced plans to join the 2-days nationwide protests by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC).

The Union, in a statement signed by the Unions Head of Media, Comrade John Kennedy Ikemefuna, disclosed that it is joining the NLC strike as an affiliate group of the Congress.

According to the MWUN, “The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) under the leadership of Comrade (Prince) Dr. Adewale Adeyanju, will join the Nigeria Labour Congress’ (NLC) 2-Day Nationwide Protest holding on the 27-28th, ( Tuesday and Wednesday) of February, 2024, as directed by the Congress after its NEC-In-Session rose from a meeting held today 26, Monday, February 2024 in Abuja, directing all its affiliate members across the nation to strictly comply.

“The protest is coming on the backdrop of the Federal government’s refusal to honour the “October 2, 2023, Agreement signed with the Congress.

“However, the Congress believes that if the Agreement had been honoured and implemented, it would have gone a long way to ameliorate the sufferings and hardships the government ill-conceived and ill-implemented policies have brought upon Nigerian Workers and the citizenry of the Country.

“In view of this, MWUN as an affiliate of the Nigeria Labour Congress would in totality comply with the NLC directive.”
