NUPENG begins strike today
I hear the strike is in solidarity with some of their members sacked on Wednesday by MRS oil and Gas (about 2,500 of them). The strike will be restricted to Lagos, Ogun, Ekiti, Oyo, Osun and Kwara. They said they will continue with the strike till their members are called back.
Meanwhile, they've threatened to embark on an indefinite strike over the failure of Fed Govt. to pay subsidy for imported petroleum products and the poor state of the country's refineries among other issues.
