The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) has extended by three days, a seven-day warning strike notice it issued against the APM Terminal Apapa.
In a letter addressed to the Managing Director, APM Terminals Apapa, dated 18th July, 2022 and signed by Comrade Erazua Oniha, on behalf of the Secretary General, the Union reminded the terminal operator about its reason for the notice.
The letter reads in part: ” I am directed to remind you that the seven days’ notice effective 23rd June, 2022, which was issued to your management within which to conclude negotiations for your employees- our members, collective bargaining agreement, expired at 6pm 29th June, 2022.
” I am further directed to inform you that in compliance with the norm of industrial engagements, the seven days’ notice has been extended by another three days effective from July 18th 2022 to 6pm 21st July 2022.”
The Union warned that if the terminal operator failed to conclude negotiations with its members at the expiration of the extended three days’ notice, it would embark on a three-day warning strike without further recourse to the management of the APM Terminal Apapa.
