The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) has called off the three days warning strike it earlier began to protest anti-labour practices in the oil and gas sector.
Also the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) also dropped its planned industrial action over similar complaints in the sector. The association had previously issued a two-week ultimatum to the government on the issues.
The two major unions in the nation’s oil sector took the decision to suspend the planned industrial action after a five-hour meeting with a Federal Government’s delegation led by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, and representatives of multinational oil companies in Abuja on Wednesday.
