Niger - Trade union representatives not reinstated in spite of legal ruling

The Council of State, ruling on the dispute between dismissed trade union representatives and the China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), invalidated their dismissals, on 11 July 2018. The CNPC is nevertheless categorically refusing to reinstate the workplace representatives. On 24 August 2018, in a letter to the general secretary of SATRAP (oil workers’ union), the managing director of the Chinese company wrote: “We would remind you that the union representatives were dismissed pursuant to the letters of 14 December 2016 sent to the 15 representatives. This decision is final and the CNPC will not call it into question.”
