NUPENG Suspends Planned Industrial Strike, Says National Leadership
The leadership of the NUPENG suspends its planned industrial strike action today as the NNPC takes steps to address issues.
A statement from the President of NUPENG Comrade Williams Akporea and Comrade Afolabi Olawale said the suspension of the strike is coming after the union issued a two week ultimatum to the federal government over issues of non-payment of workers salary and title benefits.
On November 25, NUPENG extended the two week ultimatum by seven days.
The union commended the management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC for taking steps to resolve the issues that led to the strike.
The union said agreement was reached on some of the issues that instigated the strike.
However NUPENG has assured that petroleum products would be made nationwide available during the yuletide season.
