ExxonMobil Workers Begin Nationwide Strike


The workforce of Mobil Producing Nigeria Unlimited, an affiliate of ExxonMobil, have started a three-day warning strike.

Reasons for the action, according to the workers, is that the company have been violating the provisions of the Local Content Act and firing Nigerian workers.

They are also accusing the corporation of violating previous agreements it reached with their union, the Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria.

Should the company fail to address their grievances, the workers warned that they would start an indefinite strike on Monday.

The relationship between the workers and the company have been frosting for a while with a dispute over their welfare grabbing the headlines less than five months ago.

After the company fired about 100 workers late last year at the Qua Iboe Terminal location (QIT), they shut down activities to protest against this seemingly gruesome decision.
