NUPENG asks FG to prevent Chevron, Shell from sacking workers

The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), yesterday called on the Federal Government to stop Chevron and Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC), from extending the planned sack of 18,500 workers globally to Nigeria, Vanguard reports.

NUPENG in a statement by its President, Mr. Igwe Achese, insisted that the union was worried and concerned about the purported sack threat of about 18,500 workers, though, globally in Chevron and Shell, describing the planned sack as alarming.

It claimed the planned sack was a sack too many, as oil workers in Chevron Nigeria and Shell would be affected, as the two companies had adduced dwindling oil prices in the international market for the planned sack.
