Nigerian union says to end strike over Exxon Mobil sackings

ONITSHA, Nigeria, Dec 21 (Reuters) - Nigerian oil workers at Exxon Mobil have decided to end a strike over sackings of staff after earlier agreeing to halt crude oil production, a union official said on Wednesday.

“Production will resume any moment,” Lumumba Okugbara, acting general secretary of oil labour union PENGASSAN, told Reuters. “We just rose from a meeting with the management and the issues that had led to the labour impasse have been resolved after the minister of petroleum intervened.” (Reporting by Anamesere Igboeroteonwu; Writing by Ulf Laessing.
