General Strike in Nigeria - Ports at a Standstill

Budd’s Lagos office advises that a general strike of all Nigerian public and private sector employees started this morning (27 September 2018).

For the time being, the strike has brought activity in Nigeria’s ports to a standstill.  No vessels are berthing and none are discharging cargo.

The strike is motivated by pay demands and has been described as a “Warning Strike”.

Negotiations between the government and representatives of the Trade Union Congress are underway.
