NUPENG suspends strike as PENGASSAN drops planned action

The union made the announcement Wednesday night.
The association had issued a two-week ultimatum to the government to resolve the issues.
The developments were the outcome of a meeting with officials of Federal Government delegation led by the Minister of Labour and employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, and representatives of multinational oil companies in Abuja.

NUPENG had explained that its decision to embark on the warning strike follows indiscriminate sack of workers without benefits and refusal to allow their workers to join union.
The union accused some IOCs, including Exxon/Mobil and Chevron Nigeria Limited, of unfair labour practices, especially perceived unprocedural sack of workers without benefits, breach of Nigerian extant labour laws in their divestment exercises.
Chevron was alleged to have sacked over 300 NUPENG members without benefits late last year.
