Pay rise deal for 300,000 petrol attendants hits deadlock

Talks on the planned enhanced remuneration for about 300,000 petrol attendants across the country, which were scheduled to begin last  month may have been stalled, The Nation reports.

There was an agreement to increase the salaries of petrol attendants by last month, but the decision has been mired by disagreements and stakeholders in the deal are back to the discussion table.

The deal is being brokered by some interest groups within the downstream sector of the petroleum industry. The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN); Petrol Dealers Association of Nigeria (PEDAN); Petrol Station Workers Union (PSWU) and National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) are yet to reach an agreement on the issue.
