PENGASSAN Prevented from Picketing TFE Offices

The members of PENGASSAN were stopped from picketing in front of the TotalFinaElf Nigerian offices in Port Harcourt because the company's management agreed to meet with striking workers in Lagos on Friday morning.

The workers led by their national general secretary, Kenneth Narebor, had, in Lagos on Wednesday, threatened to shut the company's flow stations if the management failed to act and call the aggrieved workers for dialogue.

The meeting is expected to cover issues such as promotions, opportunity to utilize the French village like their foreign counterparts and cross-posting.
