Angry staff of the Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (DESOPADEC) staged a peaceful protest, shutting down operations at the Warri office.
Chairman, DESOPADEC Workers’ union, Comrade John Osah says the demonstration is against the alleged non-payment of their bonuses by the board of the commission.
He accused the state government and management of the board of maltreating workers through its refusal to pay workers including the controversial 13-month bonus.
Osah also said the management refused to approve the promotion of workers for the past 10 years.
He said the workers will continue with the protest until their demands are met.
