DHAKA: Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Grameenphone Tore Jonhson Monday categorically said no demand of the protesting officials and employees would be met.
Earlier, the officials and employees besieged Tore Johnson to his office room in the morning demanding their 6-point demand, including protest of retrenchment process.
After one-hour besiege programme, Tore Johnson agreed to talk with them although he said no to them.
Later during 20 minutes long meeting with the officials, Tore Jonhson said that no demand would be met.
Tore Johnson said, “The parliamentary committee on Labour and Employment Ministry has no jurisdiction to interfere in any matter of GP as we are doing everything lawfully.”
GP Employees Association president Omar Farul told this to banglanews.
Claiming stop of job cut, chief communication officer of GP Kazi Monirul Kabir said, “No employee will be terminated more.”
But sources said, the GP authorities have continued its axe to terminate the officials. The ‘so called examination’ has been being begun from July 17 again and this type some 130 officials will face job cut.
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.
On July 18, 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).
