NUPENG on strike over poor welfare, unfavourable condition of members

Nigerians may, yet again, experience another round of fuel crisis as the tanker drivers arm of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas workers (NUPENG) have commenced an industrial action.

The union, at the weekend, announced that its members would withdraw their services starting from Monday, April 3.

The National President of NUPENG, Mr. Igwe Achese, who made the announcement in Lagos, listed the reasons for the industrial action to include unfavourable working conditions and welfare package.

Mr Achese further noted that the Federal Government has ignored several appeals by the union to help improve the welfare of the drivers.
