NUPENG called off its strike after a meeting with the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige in Abuja on Wednesday.

It was also gathered that the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria also dropped its planned industrial action over similar complaints in the sector. The association had issued a two-week ultimatum to the government on the issues.

NUPENG embarked on a three-day industrial action to protest the sacking of over 4000 oil workers without benefits by oil firms on Tuesday.
