…Senior workers lament anti-labour activties reeking at MTN Nigeria
The Telecommunications and Communications Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PTECSSAN) has issued a 14-day deadline to MTN Nigeria to address depressing and inhumane activities workers are subjected to.
In a joint media briefing on Wednesday, the President and Secretary of PTECSSAN, Opeyemi Tomori and Okonu Abdullahi alleged that the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) has neglected his duties of growth and sustainability of the company, therefore resulting to agonising anti-labour activities for members of staff.
They also stated that the CEO has rejected numerous calls made by the workers and their union to have consultations that can address the dire needs facing workers in the company.
It was further explained that all efforts to address the issues with the CEO of the company were botched, stressing that such actions indicate great threat to the industrial relations within MTN Nigeria.
They highlighted that issues connected to salary of workers, exit packages for long-term staff, employee relations practices, and abuse of expatriate quota, and others are the burning issues, adding “that the company should change its way towards the union and its members in the organisation”.
