NUPENG Extends 14-Day Strike Ultimatum By One Week

BoomRadioNG | November 26, 2021
Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers has extended the 14-day ultimatum earlier given to the Federal Government by seven days.
In a statement issued by the union’s General Secretary, Mr Afolabi Olawale, on Thursday in Lagos, NUPENG had, on November 15, issued the 14-day ultimatum to embark on a nationwide strike due to what it called non-implementation of an agreement earlier reached with the government.
The issues include non-payment of workers’ salaries and title benefits, among others.
Olawale said that in spite of the various interventions and engagements with government agencies and institutions, issues concerning welfare of members and unfair labour practices by some oil majors are yet to be fully resolved.
He urged the government and all other concerned entities to take advantage of the extension to do the needful.
“It is our hope that government does the needful and save the nation the pains and losses our industrial action will bring.”
