The Senior Staff Association of Communications Transportation and Corporation (SSACTAC), Maritime branch and the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN), NPA branch have asked their members at various ports across the country to embark on an indefinite strike from today.The notice to stay away from work was issued on Thursday by the national leadership of both bodies.
In a document made available to SHIPS & PORTS DAILY and signed by the two unions, the labour leaders pointed out that the inability of the management of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) to accede to their demands necessitated the strike action.The statement reads in part, “This is to inform employees that the management of NPA has been recalcitrant in its attitude towards the union’s demands for workers so, the leadership of the two house unions has (sic) directed that the only option left is to embark on a nationwide strike.“Consequently, every employee is hereby advised to stay at home from Monday 18th August 2014 until further notice,” the statement read
