The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) has given a 21-day ultimatum to some oil and gas employers over anti-labour practices.
Mr Fortune Obi, PENGASSAN’s Public Relation Officer (PRO) said this in a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday.
Obi said that PENGASSAN would shut down activities of the companies nationwide if they failed to resolve the industrial issues with the workers.
He said that the companies include, Fugro, Sterling Global, Indorama Petrochemical Company, Baker Hughes and General Electric.
Others are Universal Energy, Frontier Energy, Vam Onne, Neconde Energy and ObiJackson Group, SDF, Ciscon, Tecon, Obax, Pan Ocean, NNPC Retail Limited, ExxonMobil and Petrobras.
Obi said that the decision to go on strike after the 21-day ultimatum, was reached after a meeting with the Central Working Committee (CWC) of the union.
“The union gave the ultimatum due to persistent unfair industrial relation’s practices by the management of the companies in the sector,’’ he said.
