Petroleum tanker drivers threaten nationwide strike on Monday

The Petroleum Tankers Drivers arm of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers have said they would commence nationwide strike on Monday.

NUPENG’s President, Mr. Igwe Achese, announced this in a signed communique on Friday in Lagos, at the end of its Central Working Committee meeting held at the union’s secretariat in Yaba.

The communique said the strike would draw the attention of the Federal Government and other stakeholders to some unresolved issues bordering on the welfare of workers, such as bad roads, poor remuneration, insecurity and the alleged excesses of some security agencies.

“The CWC-in-session considers inhumane, the refusal of the National Association of Transport Owners to commence negotiation with the union for the renewal of the expired Collective Bargaining Agreement on the working conditions of our Tanker Driver members in the PTD branch, after several appeals and even an ultimatum.

“The CWC-in-session, therefore, resolved to give full backing to any industrial action the members in this sector might decide to take with effect from Monday, April 3, 2017.

“To avert the pains and discomfort the action might cause, the CWC-in-session calls on the Federal Government to urgently intervene, so that NARTO can meet its obligations to tanker drivers,’’ the communique said.

The communique also called on the National Assembly to urgently pass the Petroleum Industry Bill, in order to tackle all the issues of corruption plaguing the oil sector.
