Solidarity with sacked dockers in Nigeria!

Take action to support thousands of dockworkers struggling to support their families after being unfairly fired.

  • About the campaign

    UPDATE! Thanks for supporting sacked tally clerks and on board security workers in Nigeria. Thousands of letters were sent to the Nigerian government calling for their reinstatement. The union reports that this pressure has given them grounds for renegotiation with management and the ability to take forward unresolved issues for legal intervention or mediation.


    Tally clerks and security men from the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria were effectively sacked in December 2015 by the National Ports Authority who failed to renew their contracts.

    We want to see this situation resolved - if you do too follow the link to send a letter to the Nigerian government calling for their intervention to resolve this situation.

I write to intervene over the dismissal of my comrades in Nigeria most especially from the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria, that the Nigerian government by and through her National Ports Authority will see every reason to respect the ratified ILO Dock Workers Convention 1973 (No. 137) and find alternative employment for these workers
