DHAKA: Parliamentary standing committee on Labor and Employment Ministry affairs blamed GrameenPhone (GP), leading telecommunication operator in the country, for their involvement in an unfair labour practice.
The JS body also observed that GP CEO Tore Johnson and head of HR should be accused on the charge as their organisation violated the Labour law and also UN-adopted Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
Besides, the committee ruled out the proposal of GP to sit in an “exclusive meeting” to talk on the issue.
Emerging from the meeting Wednesday chairman of the committee M Israfil Alam confirmed the matter to the journalists.
Earlier in the morning, the CEO appeared before the committee’s 24th meeting which started at the parliament building at about 11am.
Earlier on July 8, the parliamentary committee asked the CEO to appear before its 24th meeting to explain the matter.
Over 300 employees of county’s mobile giant Grameenphone (GP) have lost their job so far in the ongoing retrenchment process.
At least 50 employees faced the termination measure in the name of job saving ‘examination’.
So that notorious! ‘Examination’ has become a panic for the GP employees creating a stagnant situation in the company. Those who are still in job they are passing days through frustration and panic.
Earlier GP authority tried to console the anxious employees that they are not terminating anybody but are not in a position to accommodate all for rearranging the company in newer way.
