NUPENG to begin 3-day warning strike on Wednesday

09 January 2017, 08:05

Lagos - The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) has declared that it will commence a three-day warning strike on Wednesday against an alleged anti-labour practice of International Oil Companies.

The union said the warning strike was inevitable as all other options had failed.

The union has been at loggerheads with IOCs over unfair treatment and sack of workers.
News 24 recalls that NUPENG recently shut down all depots of Total Big. Ltd over indiscriminate sack of workers.

Chevron was alleged to have sacked over 300 NUPENG members without benefits in 2016.

The company according to Vanguard also reportedly failed to recall the workers after the Ministry of Labour and Employment ordered that  all parties return to status quo.

PENGASSAN also accused Mobil of sacking over 100 workers without following laid down procedure.

The National Executive Council of NUPEG will be holding an emergency NEC  in Abuja tomorrow, ahead of commencement of the strike.
