PENGASSAN, NUPENG Threaten Nationwide Strike Over Chevron Dispute


Nigeria’s two main oil unions have prepared their members for possible nationwide industrial action over a staffing dispute with Chevron, they said in a joint statement on Saturday.

Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) and Nigeria Union Of Petroleum And Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) said they “will not hesitate to embark on nationwide industrial action” and had put members on “red alert” to do so.

Chevron did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
