Members of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas (NUPENG), has on Tuesday suspended its one-day picketing of the headquarters of General Electric (GE), following the intervention of the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige.

The protesters, who had blocked the entrance into the company, did not allow other employees and management of the company into the compound.

They were dressed in red, chanted songs, and carried placards with various inscriptions such as “GE must pay ARCO to pay our members”.

The Administration a Lagos Zonal Council, NUPENG, Mr. Badmus Aiyedun, , told journalists on Tuesday that the union suspended the strike following the intervention of Ngige.

Aiyedun hinted that the leadership of NUPENG, GE management and officials of the Labour ministry, would be meeting next Monday to resolve the lingering issues.

He, however, added that if after the meeting the matter was not resolved, the union might resume its action.

“But from today, no union member will be coming to picket the company again, ” Aiyedun said.
