The leadership of National Union of Petroleum and Gas Workers (NUPENG) has disassociated itself from a purported report that it held a meeting with Chevron Management over the seven days strike ultimatum issued over sacking of some of its members.
In a statement, the National President NUPENG, Comrade William Akporeha said, the Union never met with Chevron Management and the strike ultimatum still remains sacrosanct.
‘There was no such meeting and therefore the strike ultimatum remained intact. The union urges its members nationwide to ignore the report, continue to be on red alert and mobilize for the impending strike action at the expiration of the ultimatum’ he stated
It would be recalled that, the management of Chevron Nigeria Limited (CNL) says it has engaged the leaders of the Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) over the 175 workers laid off by one of its contract companies.
