Panic In Nigeria As Oil Workers Threaten Strike Action Over Payment Issues

Spread the love

The National Union of Petroleum and Gas Workers of Nigeria (NUPENG) yesterday issued a 14-day warning of strike over labour disputes, including those with oil majors Chevron (CVX.N) and Eni.

Nigeria is Africa’s largest oil producer and crude sales make up around 90 per cent of foreign exchange and more than half of its budget.

NUPENG represents several workers in the sector, including upstream oil platform workers, midstream regulators, fuel tanker drivers and pump attendants.

In a statement, NUPENG said the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment had from November 15 to resolve the disputes.

It raised issues over workers that were terminated in 2012 who NUPENG said were not adequately compensated.
