Nupeng Commences Strike Over Inhumane Treatment Of Its Members By Shell by Indirah(m): 2:23pm On Feb 01, 2012

The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG)  commenced a nationwide strike, yesterday, that could disrupt fuel distribution nationwide if not resolved quickly.

Petroleum tanker drivers yesterday stopped lifting fuel from storage in response to what Tokunbo Korodo, South-Western leader of NUPENG has termed consistent anti-union activities of Shell.

NUPENG is protesting what it describes as the inhumane treatment of its members by Shell, and according to Korodo, the aim of the strike is to draw the attention of government to the Shell’s activities.

Korodo said, “All our members nationwide, including the petroleum tanker drivers, are participating…, all branches of NUPENG have complied and they have given their support to their colleagues in Shell headquarters and have shut down since morning.

“No single drop of product was loaded at the depots across the federation. It is going to continue…, we are picketing Shell [Wednesday].”

The dispute between NUPENG and Shell centers on the expulsion of a union leader by NUPENG exco members. NUPENG is displeased that Shell continues to relate with the expelled leader.

Also NUPENG has accused Shell of making illegal deductions from members’ salaries.

This is nothing but a strategy by dis union members to create artificial scarcity so as to benefit frm inflated prices whc many of them benefit frm during any strike.What in d hell will make this compromised executives to go on strike over d suspension of relationship of one man by shell,whc am bliving may even b justified in his suspension wen d issues are brought out.Is this not d same NUPENG dat refused to join d nationwide strike over removal of fuel subsidy.D only people they can fool is themselves,they are a bunch of compromised,self centred,petroleum dealers disguised as union executives,nothing more,nothing less

Nonsense NUPENG, you think you are more important that other sectors, just for nothing, you start strike. Ever think what will happen when other better professionals start what you think you are doing, what will be your fate. You are just lorry drivers, and nothing other than that, so you should grow some brain cells and understand that we care less about your constant threat. Stew peed fuuls  sad sad

when we said join GEJ in the removal of fuel subsidy u all shouted no.we will die oooh! He want to kill us, dis dat. Now you see, who is NUPENG with out fuel subsidy, will the go on strike if i asked to be supplied tankers of petroleum product.

I pray the strike stays for long. When we begin to buy fuel for 200/300 per litre then you would ask GEJ TO REMOVE THE SUBSIDY QUIK.

Whats more inhuman than millions of Naijans suffering from fuel scarcity as a result of your strike, and is strike the only means to draw the attention of the Govt?

Strike twice ds year already on the same product! God help us all

What has NUPENG strike got to do with the removal of subsidy?  After Kokori, NUPENG lost all relevance within the civil society groups/labour and you'll be surprised that they only go on strike for flimsy reasons.

My friend look for another reason to support the mindless policy but be sure the policy will bounce  back at you very soon.

Seconded. They are just a bunch of over bribed, overfed, ego-bloated illiterates not far from NURTW touts. Most of the NUPENG leaders are just after bribes and settlement. I speak as an insider.

Last Year my company's truck was arrested by LASTMA. I approached the NUPENG excos to intervene and they demanded a bribe of N 100k to intervene in the release the truck from LASTMA.

ANd this is not to talk of an assortment of obnoxious levies/fees they levy on members everyday (enforced by threats/intimidation)

In one breath we would complain about our leader, while in another we would do worse than would ever do. What has the NUPENG relationship with Shell to do with the entirety of the nation. This shows the decadence to which we as Nigerians have degenerated to. The are just being wicked and want to rip Nigerian off be selling fuel at inflated price when the scarcity begins

Alot of people are taking advantage of the Nigerian situation to do and undo.Can u imagine hw a group of lorry drivers can hold the country by its balls.Our leaders are the cause of this rubbish develop our railway sector and our inland waterways they wouldn't.They're good at doing the first things last and the last things first.If they had done it,who's NUPENG!
Re: Nupeng Commences Strike Over Inhumane Treatment Of Its Members By Shell by Ad4: 9:44pm On Feb 01, 2012
If care's not taken,the executives of bodies like NUPENG're part of those frustrating the efforts of government to provide alternative means of transportation.

They are doing nothing. Things would have been better if they were doing something.
