NUPENG pickets Shell, Chevron offices

Oil workers picketed the offices of Shell Petroleum Development Company and Chevron Nigeria Limited over potential plans to cut jobs amid union demands for temporary employees to be given permanent appointments.
Shell, in a statement, denied allegations of anti-union policies and said that affected workers were being compensated. It said: “We are currently divesting from a number of our assets in Western Niger Delta as agreed by joint venture partners and approved by the Federal Government. “This is part of a portfolio realignment exercise that will also help to grow indigenous capacity in the oil and gas industry,” it added.
Chevron officials were not immediately available for comment.
