On Monday, Tokunbo Korodo, the South-West Zonal Chairman of NUPENG disclosed this to NAN, saying that the company union workers will begin the strike on January 11 and end it on January 13.
The Chairman noted: "The warning strike notice had been given since the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting that was held in Port Harcourt in December and we picked the second week of January, which commences from January 8,"
"As I am speaking to you now, all zones, including Lagos, have mobilized to ensure the success of the strike as directed by the NEC body of NUPENG. We are having another meeting in Abuja on January 10 to appraise the preparation for the planned strike and to meet the government officials," Mr. Tokubo added.
He explained that the federal Government was informed on December16 about the awaiting strike, while since then any steps has not been taking.
Mr. Tokubo said "It has been the practice of the Nigerian government to wait until the ultimatum day before they start to run from one place to the other to find solutions to it," he said. "If this warning strike is not properly handled...nobody should blame the union."
If the government fails to meet the union's demands, the awaiting three day strike may lead to nationally strike said Igwe Achese, the President of NUPENG.
The three days strike will be use to "taken over unresolved labor issues with multinationals operating in the oil and gas industry." NAN declared.
