May Day: NUPENG wants passage of PIB

Nigeria Union.of Petroleum & Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG)

The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) has called on the National Assembly to ensure speedy passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) in the best interest of the oil and gas sector.

NUPENG in its May Day message jointly signed by its National President and Secretary General, Williams Akporeha and Afolabi Olawale, respectively, also called for better and decent working conditions for workers in the sector.

“It is our hope that when eventually passed, it will meet the yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians,” the union said.

The union frowned at the casualisation of workers by international oil firms operating in the country.
