The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, PENGASSAN, has ordered all branch chairmen and its members nationwide to begin an indefinite strike over Federal Government’s breach in agreement on IPPIS implementation and redundancy in Baker Hughes.
This is coming after the expiration of the 7-Day Ultimatum given to federal government over the manner their members were included in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Management System (IPPIS).
However, PENGASSAN, in a statement to all branch Chairmen and signed by the association General Secretary, Comrade Lumumba Okugbawa, said it was regrettable that upon the expiration of the ultimatum, nothing concrete had been done with regards to the outstanding issues as enumerated in the letter.
Ighotemu said all zonal offices are to monitor compliance.
IPPIS means Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS). It is an information Communications Technology (ICT) project initiated by the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of payroll administration for its Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).
The association had on November 2, 2020, issued 7-day ultimatum and further extension to the relevant government agencies and institutions on IPPIS.
