NLC Strike: Warri Port Staff Shun Work

THE two-day warning strike declared by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) recorded compliance at the Nigerian Ports Authority, Warri, Delta State, as scores of workers did not come to work.

The strike recorded compliance as workers blocked entry to Warri Port, preventing entry into the port premises.

Monitoring the compliance level, about 11 NLC officials were sighted at the gate of the Port, ensuring that the workers were not allowed entry into the port, in a peaceful atmosphere.


Apart from the NLC officials, who were clad in white polo shirts and white face caps, there were no placards or overt demonstrations, even though there was palpable anxiety.

It was gathered that many of the workers participating in the two-day warning strike seemed to lack detailed knowledge about the reason(s) behind the industrial action.

When asked questions, they simply responded “no comment” or redirected us to speak with their superiors, when pressed for details.
