Written by News Room on November 28, 2021
Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) has extended the 14-day ultimatum earlier given to the Federal Government by seven days.
This is contained in a statement issued by the union’s General Secretary, Mr Afolabi Olawale in Lagos.
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 had yet to be fully resolved.
NUPENG had, on Nov. 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 government.
