Post created on 11:25 am
Private Telecommunications and Communications Senior Staff Association of Nigeria have issued a 14 day ultimatum to MTN Nigeria to address issues bordering on workers welfare or face an industrial action.
The telecommunication union said workers would disrupt telecommunication service nationwide if MTN failed to accept its demands before the expiration of the two-week ultimatum.
This statement was signed by the union President, Opeyemi Tomori, and Secretary, Okonu Abdullahi, it said MTN should respect and adhere to international best practices as written in the International Labour Organisation.
“You may recall that sometimes in 2019, a similar ultimatum was issued but for the timely intervention of the Honorable Minister of Labour and Productivity, the planned action did not take place.”
The association also said, while MTN claims respect for freedom of association and rights of its employees to belong to it, the company continues to refuse negotiating collective bargaining agreements with it.
There are no existent mutual negotiated exit benefits with members of MTN and they are also exposed to discriminatory remuneration/benefits and ridiculous inhumane retirement benefits.
