The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) has suspended its planned nationwide strike. This was confirmed in a statement signed and released by the association’s President, Mr. Williams Akporeha, and General Secretary, Mr. Afolabi Olawale on Thursday in Lagos.
The suspension of the planned strike is coming weeks after NUPENG issued a two-week ultimatum to the federal government over issues including non-payment of workers’ salaries and title benefits.
The statement read; “NNPC’s management has once again proven to the union and the nation that it can be trusted in matters of ensuring decency of employment and peaceful industrial relations in the Nigerian oil and gas industry.
The union said an agreement was reached on some of the issues that instigated the planned strike. “Some of the resolutions from these engagements include the commencement of the processes to clear all backlogs of arrears of salaries and allowances owed contract workers of Oil Mining Licence 42 before the end of December.
“The agreement and firm commitment to pay N2.13 million 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.” Read also: NUPENG Set To Embark On Nationwide Strike By Dec 11
