The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria has suspended the strike it embarked upon on Monday July 1 on Wednesday pending the outcome of the meeting scheduled for next week between the union and Nigerian Ports Authority, Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Nigerian Shippers Council and International Oil Companies.

The President General of the union, Comrade Adewale Adeyanju made this known in a press statement issued by the union.

‘’We have noted with grave concerns that some major stakeholders in the industry who are not in any way involved on why the union embarked on the strike action are adversely affected in their operations.

We have decided to suspend the strike action pending the outcome of the meeting scheduled to take place next week between NPA, NIMASA, NSC, NNPC and the IOCs with the leadership of Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria,’’ said Adeyanju.
