Breaking: PENGASSAN Threatens Nationwide Strike In 21 Days

Abuja - If employers in the oil and gas industry do not address certain industrial issues and anti-labor practices within 21 days, the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) has threatened to go on nationwide strike. 

According to reports, the association’s resolve was contained in a statement signed by Fortune Obi, its national public relations officer, after its Central Working Committee (CWC) meeting in Abuja.

While calling on stakeholders to address issues within the stipulated period of time, the association lamented over the maltreatment and anti-labor practices against its members by management.






The statement read in part: “PENGASSAN in the last three years has not only been excessively stretched but equally unnecessarily over-burdened and is fast running out of patience over the loss of will by various managements to attend to industrial/welfare issues. “Particularly frustrating is the sustained, deliberate and indiscriminate redundancies, sack actualization, ill-treatment, adverse work condition, incessant disagreement to collective bargain resolutions and other anti-labor practices against our members by these managements without recourse to extant labor laws.”

 In light of these grave accusations, Obi stated that PENGASSAN has directed its Zonal Executive Councils in Port Harcourt, Lagos, Kaduna and Warri, to begin mobilizing its members for the planned strike.
