NUPENG threatens to withdraw services over unpaid gratuities


Socio-economic activities in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, and its neighbouring states may be grounded in the next two weeks as the leadership of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers.
NUPENG has threatened to withdraw its services over the non payment of N3 billion severance package to the sacked workers by Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON).
Addressing journalists in Abuja, the National President of NUPENG, comrade Igwe Achese, who issued the two-week threat notice in Abuja, expressed displeasure over the breakdown of negotiation between the Union and management of AMCON for the inability to pay the N3 billion terminal benefits for disengaged staff of Seawolf Drilling company, River State.
Comrade Achese accused AMCON of not fulfilling the agreed demands of the Union at a reconciliation meeting, adding that over 300 workers of the oil firm were disengaged unceremoniously in 2013, over the company’s indebtedness to a commercial bank to the tune of N25 billion, before AMCOM took over the assets and liabilities of Seawolf.
