The grievances of the workers include transfer of TOPCON employees to Chevron without their consent in contravention of Section 1 of Rule 10 of the Nigerian Labor Act (Cap 198), which provided that transfer of contract from one employer to another should be with the consent of the employees concerned. Other grievances include termination of the appointments of 129 TOPCON employees and demotion of some others.
