PENGASSAN suspends strike


Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) says it has suspended its strike after the intervention by the Director of DSS, Lawal Daura, the Minister of Labour & Productivity, Dr. Chris Ngige, the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu and the NECONDE Energy management.

According to a statement from the PENGASSAN National Public Relations Officer, Fortune Obi, Legal consultants to NECONDE have offered a letter of recalled to the sacked employees of the company.

NECONDE also agreed to allow union exist in the company.

The Minister of Labour and Productivity as well as the PENGASSAN has therefore agreed to endeavour to resolve anti-union posture by other indigenous companies and marginal field operators.

A meeting has been fixed for second week of January 2018 to look into the issues.
