850 Refinery Workers Having Been Sacked By NNPC – NUPENG Says

The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers and the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association said on Monday that the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation had sacked 850 contractors at the country’s processing plants.

The associations uncovered this in a joint explanation marked by the National President, NUPENG, Williams Akporeha, and his partner in PENGASSAN, Mr Ndukaku Ohaeri, just as their general secretaries.

The announcement was entitled ‘NUPENG and PENGASSAN firmly respond to remarks by Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva, on processing plants and oil and gas laborers’.

“On the indicated danger of the Group Managing Director of NNPC to sack laborers, we wish to state here that it was quite progressively a danger yet that it had just been done with the sack of 850 care staff amidst COVID-19 pandemic, tossing right around a thousand specialists into hard money related circumstance without a bit of compassion or interview with the association,” it said.

The associations said they never took steps to take to the streets, yet that they just requested to be locked in for an appropriate conversation on the proportionate terminal advantages of the laborers who had worked for 10 to 15 years.

They stated, “We discovered it rather exceptionally brutal and out of line with respect to NNPC the executives to sack these laborers with just their last paycheques following 15 great long periods of their lives in NNPC.

“In the event that a Minister of Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Group Managing Director of NNPC can excuse contractors that have served for over 10 years persistently as though they are rodents, what more would we be able to anticipate from lOCs. The month to month compensations of 25 of these agreement staff set up can’t rise to an average administration staff pay of a similar association.”
