Relief As Oil Workers Call Off Proposed Strike

24 July 2011

THE nation was yesterday saved from another round of strike that would have disrupted supply of petroleum products across the country, as the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) announced the suspension of a proposed three- day industrial action that would have begun tonight.

The oil workers, who threatened strike over what it termed, “inhuman treatment of workers by Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC), suspended the plan following Federal Government’s intervention yesterday.

At a meeting with the Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Allison Madueke, and her Labour & Productivity Counterpart, Chief Chukwuemeka Wogu, in Abuja, the aggrieved parties agreed to continue to hold interactive sessions to conclude all the issues within the next two weeks.
