Nigerians Threaten MPN with Strike Over Pay

Mobil Producing Nigeria Unlimited (MPN) could be facing an employee shortage Wednesday. The company learned April 21 that a failure to meet employees' demands for an increase in pay may result in a strike that would begin April 23.

Pengassan, the Petroleum & Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, is the strong arm for Nigerian oil and gas workers, and they are once again flexing to gain "adequate compensation commensurate with productivity," as well as other work-related issues, according to Dow Jones.

Although negotiations have been ongoing, an agreement has not been reached. Pengassan gave MPN a Wednesday deadline to resolve the outstanding issues currently on the table.

A Nigerian news source quoted an MPN representative as saying that the dispute would be resolved before Wednesday.
