We didn’t lay-off 175 employees, Chevron explains

By Ebi Perekeme

The management of Chevron Nigeria Limited has insisted that it did not lay off 175 of its employees, rather one of our independent contractors did.

The company also stated that it has engaged the leaders of the Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG, on a possible resolution with the contractor over the 175 workers laid off.

Speaking to newsmen in Lagos, on the outcome of the development, Mr Esimaje Brikinn, the company’s General Manager, Policy, Government and Public Affairs, said the laid-off workers were not employees of Chevron but workers of an independent contractor providing services to Chevron.

He said the contract company laid off its workers following the suspension of the service contract agreement between it and Chevron.

“CNL is a responsible and law-abiding company. In keeping with our commitment to resolving issues through meaningful dialogue and respect for the rule of law, we are engaging the leaders of NUPENG and the contractor company to fully understand and seek an amicable resolution of the issues.

“The company’s highest priority remains the welfare and safety of its employees, contractors and the security of its assets; we will, therefore, do our best to safeguard these interests,” Brikinn said.
