Workers in the maritime sector under the aegis of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria have concluded plans to ground port operations of the International Oil Companies over what its described as their non-compliance with the Extant Stevedoring Regulations also known as Government Marine Notice 106 of 2014.

As a result, the union said it would embark on an indefinite industrial action against the IOCs, effective March 1, 2022.

This was contained in a statement on Tuesday in Lagos jointly signed by the union’s President General, Adewale Adeyanju, and the Secretary General, Felix Akingboye.

The union also accused the IOCs of failing to allow ‘stevedoring companies’ access to their platforms to commence operations.

Part of the MWUN statement read, “We convey to you, Minister, the esteemed regard of the entire members of Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria. We bring to you, the decision of the Central Working Committee of the Union at its meeting held Monday, January 24, 2022, to embark on an indefinite strike action effective from Tuesday, March 1, 2022, over the International Oil Companies’ non-compliance with the Extant Stevedoring Regulations known as Government Marine Notice 106 of 2014”
