13 Oct Maritime workers threaten strike over Apapa gridlock
The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) has given the Federal and Lagos State governments 21-day ultimatum to call Maersk Line, PIL, MSC and MOL to order.
The union said the companies’ trucks were responsible for the gridlock at Apapa and Tin-Can ports.
MWUN accused the four shipping companies of largely responsible for the gridlock caused by heavy duty trucks on the Oshodi-Apapa Expressway, causing negative economic consequences at Tin-Can and Apapa ports.
In a statement by its President-General, Adewale Adeyanju, MWUN warned that failure by appropriate government agencies to address their demand, the union will embark on industrial action to protect its members.
