Sack: Pengassan calls strike

A Nigerian oil workers’ union has called a strike over 150 workers who were sacked in December, a union member told Reuters news agency.

The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (Pengassan) union called for the shutdown of all Exxon Mobil Corp facilities in the Niger Delta.

Reuters was unable to verify whether union members had shut down the company’s facilities and oil sources told them there had been no impact on production.

Madubuezi Azubuike, who chairs the union in Rivers state, said the call followed the breakdown of talks with the company over sackings and was part of a strike that began last week, reports the BBC.
