PostSubject: Panic as the BIG oil companies sack 3,000 workers   2016-10-27, 21:21




– NUPENG’s national president has urged the federal government to prevent sack of oil workers

– This is coming after the recent sack of 3,000 oil workers

– NUPENG gave the government a 21-day ultimatum to step in

The travails of the the Nigerian economy as taken on a sad note as the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), on Wednesday, October 26 issued a 21-day ultimatum to the federal government, to prevent international oil companies operating in the country from sacking oil workers.

Mr Igwe Achese, the national president of NUPENG, gave the ultimatum at the end of a meeting of the central working committee of NUPENG, which held in Effurun, Uvwie local government area of Delta state.

Speaking at the meeting, Achese said many oil companies, including Chevron, ExxonMobil, Pan Ocean and Ground Petroleum, were leaving the country due to the recession, which has led to the sacking of about 3,000 oil workers.

The national president said that if the federal government fails to stop the ongoing mass sack in the oil sector, many more would lose their jobs.

Achese said: “It is painful to say as I address you, Chevron has wound up in the East and their offices closed. A total of 1,500 workers were sacked without their entitlements and nobody is saying anything. As we speak, many companies have left and many others are winding up to go.

“Many oil companies are winding up, including ExxonMobil, Pan Ocean, Sapiem Ground Petroleum, and Hercules Offshore Nigeria Limited. About 3,000 workers have already been sacked by the various oil companies.

“The Federal Government should act fast to avert further loss of jobs. There is too much redundancy in the oil industry, which needs urgent action from government to salvage the situation.”

Meanwhile, the headquarters of the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS), has been thrown into crisis over the leakage of a list containing the names and rank of some sacked senior and junior officers of the service.
