A strike by oil workers under the auspices of NUPENG and PENGASSAN against the restructuring of Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) was yesterday suspended.
General Secretary of National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas (NUPENG) Joseph Ogbebor, also said the two unions agreed to call off their strike, after the government had promised to safeguard the jobs of their members, pensions, among meeting other problems.
He said: ‘’ After a long meeting between the Federal Government and PENGASSAN/ NUPENG, the government said the issues such as pension of oil workers, employment and others would be well taken care off. As a result of this, we have no choice than to call off the strike. We have no delight in going on strike. But some pressing issues, often times, made us to down tools in the sector. ‘’
