Labour union begins indefinite nationwide strike Monday

The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) has urged members to shut down all shipping company activities and commence an indefinite nationwide strike on Monday over a continuing disagreement with shipping businesses about low pay and employee welfare.
