 The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) has suspended its planned nationwide strike.

The decision to suspend the strike, which was planned to commence 11:59 pm on Monday followed the intervention of the Director of State Security Service, Lawal Musa Daura; the Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chris Ngige; and the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu.

Giving reasons for the action, PENGASSAN alleged anti-labour practices by some indigenous oil companies against some of its members.

After the negotiation with the DSS, the Minister of Labour and the Minister of State for Petroleum, the management of Neconde Energy Limited offered a letter of recall to the sacked employees.

Neconde Energy Limited was represented by its Managing Director and legal consultants. The management also agreed to allow the union to exist in the company.

PENGASSAN National Public Relations Officer, Fortune Obi, said that Ngige agreed to endeavour to resolve anti-union posture by other indigenous companies and marginal field operators, while a meeting was fixed for the second week of January 2018 to look at the issues. (Channels TV)
