PENGASSAN Declare meeting with Government Inconclusive, Continue Strike

Must Read

The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) on Wednesday announced its meeting with the Federal Government as inconclusive and declared the continuation of the strike.

The President, Felix Osifo, gave this update in a statement.

He said the Federal government was yet to address some of the demands of PENGASSAN demands, so the strike would continue.

After the directive, the parties had also disagreed that the oil workers register for the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

Osifo disclosed that PENGASSAN maintained that Petroleum Training Institute and Petroleum Product Pricing Regulatory Agency must be paid using the harmonized template of 2015.

He also said that this was already in use by the budget office, appropriated by the National Assembly and signed by President Muhammadu Buhari into law.

The labour leader speaking further said the union wants a high-powered committee, comprising Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas workers and PENGASSAN Presidents, to settle the outstanding issues surrounding the IPPIS platform.

“For the 22 months salary arrears, the government agreed to pay 50 percent and that the balance would be worked out after the Federation Accounts Allocation Committee has met. PENGASSAN has agreed, but insisted that there should be a definite date for payment of the balance,’’ he said.
