Members of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria have commenced a three-day warning strike on Wednesday.
The strike has occurred as a result of the protest against the non-payment of their salaries for the past three months.
An act which was carried out to express their griefs was that the senior workers downed tools at the Abuja headquarters of the Federal Ministry of Petroleum Resources (FMPR).
According to The Punch, the strike was embarked upon by PENGASSAN to kick against the Federal Government’s inclusion of its members in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information system.
In cconfirmation of the industrial action, the association’s National Public Relations Officer, who is also the Rivers State Secretary of the Trade Union Congress, Fortune Obi conscented to the new development.
The striking senior staff staged a protest in Abuja, displaying various placards with inscriptions such as:
“IPPIS is a pandemic than COVID-19, the President should act fast,” and “IPPIS office, respect your agreement and come for negotiations” among others.
