Oil Workers Picket Shell, Chevron Offices in Nigeria

From Google News

Oil workers picketed the offices of Shell and Chevron in Nigeria on Tuesday over potential plans to cut jobs and amid union demands for temporary employees to be given permanent contracts.

The protest however had not affected oil production in Africa’s largest crude producer.

“The offices of Shell and Chevron in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Warri have been blocked by our members,” said Tokunbo Korodo, an official with the blue-collar oil workers union NUPENG, naming Nigerian cities.

“No worker is allowed into the premises.”

He said the picketing of the two firms, which began Monday, would continue “until the management heeds our demands to scrap their anti-labour practices.”
