Intels gets seven-day ultimatum to recall sacked workers
The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) has directed the management of Intels Nigeria Limited at Onne Port, Rivers State to recall the 600 sacked workers and issued the firm a seven-day ultimatum to do so.
In a memo addressed to the Managing Director of Intels, MWUN said the firm terminated its contract with Associate Maritime Services (AMS), its subsidiary, which led to the disengagement of over 600 workers without recourse to the union for the negotiation of their terminal benefits.
The letter, signed by General Secretary of MWUN, Felix Akingboye, maintained that the oppressive labour practice was unacceptable to the union, thereby issuing a seven-day ultimatum to withdraw letters of termination and redundancy to the workers and recall them to duty.
It said the failure of Intels to recall the workers, the union is compelled to withdraw the services of its members from the company’s terminal at the expiration of the notice.
