NUPENG SUSPENDS PLANNED NATION-WIDE STRIKE

The leadership of our great Union hereby suspends the planned nation-wide strike over some unfair labor behavior of some companies in the industry following the successful conclusion of various interventions and engagements with government agencies and institutions, most especially the Nigeria National Petroleum Company (NNPC).

Some of the resolutions from these engagements include:
1- The commencement of the processes to clear all the backlogs of arrears of salaries and allowances owed Contract workers of OML 42 and NAOC before the end of December 2021.

2- The agreement and firm commitment to pay a sum of N2,130,000 to each of the former employees of the big six Contractors whose terminal benefits were short paid in 2012 following the closure of the Contract.

3- The agreement and firm commitment to pay each of the former contract employees of Ykish and Muyideen one Month Gross Salary per each year served as terminal benefits.

The leadership of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) appreciate the excellent roles Mallam Mele Kyari, ( Group Managing Director- NNPC) and his wonderful team of highly professional individuals, played in positively resolving the impasse.

NNPC management has once again proven to the Union and the nation in general that it can be trusted in matter of ensuring decency of employment and peaceful industrial relations system in the Nigeria Oil and Gas industry.

On behalf of the entire rank and file members of our great Union, we promise to reciprocate this commendable effort with hitch-free and effective distribution of Petroleum Products and other Oil and Gas operations to the nation during the forthcoming festive period.

We also wish to appreciate all our members for their continued commitment and loyalty to Union Cause.
There is no doubt that our solidarity remains constant as the Union makes us strong!
