PENGASSAN And NUPENG Suspend Strike

Members of Nigeria’s major labour unions in the oil and gas sector have suspended the strike they embarked on August 13, 2020.

The unions embarked on the strike in protest against the non-payment of their salaries.

Officials of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria and the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas workers said the strike was called off after various agreements were reached with the Federal Government.

The National Public Relations Officer, PENGASSAN, who doubles as the Rivers State Secretary of the Trade Union Congress, Fortune Obi, confirmed the suspension to The PUNCH at 1.04 am on Tuesday.

He said:

Strike suspended as Federal Government agrees to pay the owed salaries while the IPPS (Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System) is sorted out in the future
