Written by admin on October 14, 2020
The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria has issued a seven-day ultimatum to the management of Intels to withdraw the sack letters issued to 600 staff.
The affected workers were said to be in its Rivers and Warri operational areas.
The MWUN said the company, which was said to be linked to a former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, would face total shut down of its operations nationwide should management refuse to act accordingly.
The Secretary-General of MWUN, Felix Akingboye, issued the threat in a letter to the management of Intels Nigeria Limited in Onne Port through its Regional Human Resources Manager, Mr. M. Ndon and obtained by journalists in Abuja on Wednesday evening.
He said the company had recently declared 30 workers redundant.
The letter reads, “Over the years, the welfare benefits of your employees (Intels Nig. Ltd.) and that of your subsidiary Company, AMS, has always been the product of joint negotiation between your Management and the Union. In other words, the employees of the Principal (Intels Nigeria Ltd) and its subsidiary AMS enjoy the same welfare benefits.
