The Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) has said it has not taken a definite stand yet on the proposed nationwide industrial action by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).

NUPENG’s General Secretary, Comrade Adamu Song said consultations were still ongoing at different levels to reach a conclusion on the issue.

Adams made this known via a press statement made available to journalists on Sunday, November 4.

The statement reads in part: “NUPENG wishes to inform the general public that it has not taken a definite stand on the proposed nationwide industrial action.

“We are mindful of the fact that consultations are at different levels to resolve all issues at stake.

“We urge the general public to avoid unnecessary panic and confusion.

“We also urge our members to remain calm and wait for a formal directive from the national secretariat of our union.”

Meanwhile, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has assured Nigerians that there will not be scarcity of petroleum products, despite Labour Unions’ insistence on proceeding on a nationwide strike from November 6 over the disputed wage rate.
