Share this story:

Representatives of the Nigeria National Petroleum Company and leadership of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers are presently meeting in Abuja to avert industrial action as a result of the seven-day ultimatum issued to the Federal Government on Wednesday by NUPENG.

NUPENG had asked the FG to compel Chevron Nigeria Limited to honour the agreement it reached with the union on June 20, 2019, saying its members would embark on strike if the agreement was not respected in seven days.

President of the Union, Williams Akporeha, told newsmen in Abuja on Thursday that NNPC had intervened and a meeting had been scheduled.

He said, “Because of the ultimatum we issued yesterday (Wednesday), NNPC has stepped in as a mediator in the issues we raised. A meeting was scheduled and we are at the meeting venue and discussion is on now. Further directives will be issued after the meeting.”
